Occupy Tulsa Before the Council
By KWGS News/AP
Tulsa, OK – Occupy Tulsa goes before the Tulsa City Council seeking a permit to stay in the city park and to waive fees and insurance. Organizer Samuel Mollick says they can't afford it.
The Council took no action on the request. No one from the parks department was at the meeting. Ten people were arrested at the park last night.
A crowd on the sidewalk sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" as officers took the protesters into custody at the Chapman Centennial Green park in downtown Tulsa.
The arrests bring the total to 33 Occupy Tulsa protesters who have been arrested since Tuesday night.
Police Chief Chuck Jordan says he's enforcing the park's curfew. Protesters had camped at the park since Friday.
