#OccupyChicago: At Least 100 Arrests in City Park
Anti-Wall Street demonstrators of the Occupy Chicago movement stood their ground in a downtown park in noisy but peaceful defiance of police orders to clear out, prompting at least 100 arrests early Sunday, authorities said.
Occupy Chicago spokesman Joshua Kaunert vowed after the arrests that the protesters would be coming back.
"We’re not going anywhere. There are still plenty of us," Kaunert told The Associated Press after police began the wave of arrests that took more than an hour to complete.
