Occupy Charleston protesters who decided to stay in Marion Square, Downtown Charleston, Tuesday night, were arrested for disobeying the 11 p.m. curfew.
“Read me my rights! Read me my rights! Read me my rights right now! Read me my rights! I have not been informed why I have been detained!” an Occupy Charleston protester said.
Charleston police arrived at Marion Square in Charleston just after 12:30 a.m Wednesday morning to arrest protesters for staying in the square past 11 p.m.
“Shame on you! Shame on you! Mic check! Mic Check! I am proud to have served in the military for all of you and I love you all! We love you too!” the protesters said.
The group consisted of about 30, but no word on how many were actually arrested. Handcuffs or not, some told ABC-News 4 in Charleston, they were proud of their decision to stay.
“This is the proudest moment of my life. All day, all week, Occupy Wall Street!” protesters said.
