Occupy Chicago Sun Oct 23 2011
After hours of demonstrating, dozens of protestors were arrested around 1am on Sunday while supporters chanted, "ONE - We are the people! TWO - We are united! THREE - The occupation is not leaving!"
The protest was as notable for its size as its orderliness, with demonstrators hosting conversations weighing the pros and cons of risking arrest and police officers glacially moving towards detaining the protestors. Nearly two hours passed between when the police shut down the park and the first protesters were escorted to CPD trucks in plastic restraints.
