Occupy Atlanta protests at five Chase banks led to 14 arrests Monday in the Atlanta area, according to police.
In the city of Atlanta, six protesters were arrested at the Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard branch in west Atlanta as locks were being placed on the doors, Sgt. Curtis Davenport with Atlanta police told the AJC.
Eight other protesters were arrested at a branch off Moreland Avenue in DeKalb County, Mekka Parish, DeKalb police spokeswoman, said Monday afternoon.
Sofia Lipko, one of the Occupy Atlanta organizers, told the AJC the latest arrests won't deter the group's efforts to fight what she said was corporate greed.
"I think every bank had a different reaction," Lipko, who was not among those arrested Monday, said in a phone interview. "In Mechanicsville, they (police) were giving no warning. There were six (protesters) handcuffed and arrested.”
