Dozens of protesters at economic inequality demonstrations in Austin, Texas and Portland, Oregon were arrested peacefully early on Sunday over allegedly failing to comply with rules in each city.
At Occupy Austin, some 38 people were arrested on Saturday night and early Sunday after refusing to let police take down food tables and clean the City Hall plaza where they had camped for several weeks, police told Reuters on Sunday.
They were charged with criminal trespass and issued citations that mean they can’t return to the protest site.
