ALBANY, N.Y. -- More arrests as Occupy Albany protesters say they'll continue to challenge restrictions on state property.
Nearly 50 demonstrators were arrested Saturday night for defying the 11 p.m. curfew in Lafayette Park. This marks the highest number of arrests since protesters began challenging the curfew in the state owned park last weekend.
City officials have allowed the demonstration to set up camp in Academy Park, but protestors say they want state leaders to hear their message.
"Well if we wish to be effective at a state level, we are the occupy in the capital of New York and so to be effective in the capital, it's important that the state recognize our constitutional right," said protester Brendan Kelly.
Those arrested were issued appearance tickets for Albany City Court. The Albany County District Attorney has maintained that peaceful protestors will not be prosecuted.
