Occupy protesters arrested overnight

TULSA - Another group of Occupy Tulsa protesters was arrested overnight.

Some of the group violated Tulsa's park curfew, leading to the arrests of nine protesters.

The scene was said to be mostly calm and the arrests were made without incident.

Last week, city councilors denied an appeal to waive permit requirements for Occupy Tulsa, which would've allowed them to remain in city parks after the 11 p.m. curfew.

In response, occupiers said they would continue their protest downtown until their demands are met.

Occupy Tulsa is part of a larger movement that began on Wall Street in September.  It has since spread across the nation.  Demonstrators say they are protesting financial inequality.
