About 130 protesters were arrested at Occupy Chicago protests last night after they erected tents and refused to leave Grant Park. It was the second time in a week a large amount of protesters were arrested in Chicago, after 175 were arrested last weekend. Most of the protesters were released after agreeing to appear in court at a later date, The Guardian reported.
