Four More Occupy Sacramento Demonstrators Arrested

Occupy Sacramento protesters march through downtown Thursday as a movement that started on Wall Street spreads nationwide. One woman carried a sign with three choices: Republican, Democrat and Fed Up, with the last one checked.

Four more Occupy Sacramento demonstrators were arrested last night at Chavez Plaza.

Dozens of arrests have taken place since last week when protestors failed to disperse. Protestors filled City Council Chambers earlier this week to ask they be allowed to remain in the park without being arrested.

Protestors want to remain in the downtown park 24 hours a day in violation of the city's anti-camping ordinances.

Occupiers maintain that they are not camping, but holding a demonstration, which should be exempt from city ordinances.
