Occupy MN protesters march to the Fed [VIDEO]
|Minneapolis police were vigilant as Occupy MN marchers entered the Fed's private park.|
"They wanted to just do it," says April Lukes-Streich, one of Occupy MN's organizers. "We were like, 'You guys, don't.'"
Finally word came that if marchers were flanked by Minneapolis police, they could go at 2:30 p.m. The protesters held themselves back until about 2.
A hundred or so marchers made their way down the middle of Washington Avenue to the Fed, and convened briefly in the public plaza outside. They then marched down into the Fed's adjoining park, which is technically private property. Police waited at the bottom of the sloped park.
