‘Occupy Denver’ spokeswoman says police injustice only boosts protest
“Occupy Denver” media coordinator Jeannie Harley said on Current TV’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann that she did not witness any protesters being unruly during the violent arrests at Saturday’s rally in Civic Center Park.
“We’d had a perfectly peaceful march, a perfectly peaceful rally, and it turned into something much worse,” she said.
Police in riot gear shot pepper spray into a crowd of “Occupy Denver” protesters and arrested 20 people when marchers entered the Capitol grounds.
“People are in the streets because of injustice,” Harley said. “So for the police force to inflict more injustice upon us is not going to make us leave the streets – it’s going to make more people come into the streets.”
