Occupy Denver activists carried out a solidarity protest over the weekend that was largely peaceful, however, there were four members of the group arrested.

You can see the chain of events leading to the final arrest as a Denver police officer officer grabs a protester, and then [the protester] says, via bullhorn, that "We don't negotiate with terrorists and DPD (Denver Police) is a terrorist organization." That didn't go over well, of course, at least not with the DPD.

Occupy Denver:

In solidarity with cities across The United States, Occupy Denver is calling for a solidarity march in response to the massive violence and repression of residents in Anaheim California. Time and time again the justice system turns a blind eye to the violence committed by the state, whether it is someone tortured in a jail cell, beaten on a sidewalk, or in this case; shot in the back. Many accept the fact that the men in badges who shake us down for traffic tickets, harass communities of color, and preserve the status quo of the ruling class are out there preserving some sort of moral order. This is not a moral order, for no moral order attacks people seeking to have their grievances redressed. It was not a moral order that attacked with batons, fired bean bag rounds and rubber bullets at children in Anaheim this week. We call on everyone in Denver who is fed up with police murders & state repression to take the streets with us. We will honor the souls that were lost in Anaheim, and remember those who have befallen the same fate in Denver.

Those who were arrested face obstruction charges, and have all been released on bail.
