Six Occupy Albany demonstrators were charged with misdemeanor trespassing in the Capitol on May 31 in a demonstration aimed at raising the minimum wage.
The protesters were arrested and handcuffed by state troopers after they staged a sit-in in the office of Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. State police say they were arrested after they refused to leave the office.
Outside the Republican leader’s office, the Occupy members walked peacefully with their hands cuffed behind them and a trooper helping them down several flights of stairs. Supporters shouted, “This movement is unstoppable, a living wage is possible!”
