Occupy Albuquerque, stationed at Yale Park at the University of New Mexico, has experienced two different arrest encounters with the local police.
The first incident occurred as police moved on the occupation after their protest permit expired on October 24th. Police deployed pepper spray and 31 people were arrested.
Several days later, the protesters appealed to the University administration to reinstate their protest permit.The administration refused, but the protesters reoccupied anyway. The UNM PD deployed more than 60 police cars to disperse the peaceful assembly.
