Protester Chris Casuccio on Sunday said that police gave demonstrators little warning before kicking them out of the park and that officers beat several of them during the arrests.
"There was a lot of silliness and just kind of singing and dancing and really very jovial," said Chris Casuccio, who works for a nonprofit organization. "We had some banners up. There was one tarp that was up, but it was tiny. It could fit like five people under it."
