My name is Kelly Schomburg, I’m the girl with the red hair in these pictures. I was protesting at the Occupy Wall Street march yesterday when I and several other women were sprayed with mace and subsequently arrested. Many have already seen the video, which has been spreading like wildfire over twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other video feeds, along with hundreds of other photos and videos. This is my recount of what happened.
This is bullshit. I can’t believe they’re trying to get away with this. You can even tell they’re on the sidewalk in the pictures at the top. How can the police get away with this? Aren’t we allowed to protest?
