Minneapolis Police Move in on Occupy Protesters
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minneapolis police have moved in on a small group of anti-Wall Street protesters who set up tents Thursday outside City Hall.
Police removed a handful of tents and took away two protesters.
Other protesters stood by yelling at officers with megaphones. Six people were lying down as officers removed tents. Police also took away protesters’ sleeping bags.
The protesters had moved about half a block to City Hall after their tents were removed by security officers at the nearby Hennepin County Government Center earlier Thursday.
