Linda Sarsour and other activists involved with the Women's March's #DayWithoutAWoman have been arrested in New York City, the Women's March account and A Plus reporter Isaac Saul reported on Twitter.
After convening at 59th and 5th, on the southeast corner of Central Park, protesters marched down 59th Street towards Trump International Hotel on Wednesday. NYPD soon arrived and gave dispersal orders. According to Saul, "Police gave several warnings to disperse. Sarsour and others refused, one was taken to the ground."
A picture posted to the Women's March Twitter shows Sarsour, Paola Mendoza, Alyssa Klein, Carmen Perez, Bob Bland, and others in the back of an NYPD van after being arrested. "We are not sure what precinct we are being taken to at the moment. But we are together, reSisters," the tweet reads.
A representative for NYPD told The FADER that they had "no info at this time" on the arrests. A representative for Linda Sarsour was not immediately available for comment.
