Police arrested around 100 protesters early Tuesday in a downtown Boston park. The protesters were part of Occupy Boston, an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Police, some dressed in riot gear, moved on the protesters in Rose Kennedy Greenway, tearing down tents and arresting scores of people. The protesters had been warned to leave the site, near their official encampment at Dewey Square. Occupy Boston claimed in a press release that the police "made no distinction between protesters, medics, or legal observers."
Anasstassia Baichorova is a protester with the Occupy Boston movement. She was at the protest last night until 4 AM, and her partner was among those arrested. Matthew Filipowicz, host of the podcast, The Matthew Filipowicz Show, also speaks to what he witnessed.
