Living Wage Protesters Arrested

Four living wage activists were arrested following a march on the Downtown Mall yesterday evening. A dozen or so folks marched down the mall in early evening, waving signs and puppets, before several of them chained themselves to the Omni’s elevators. Spot Etal, Nicholas Graber-Grace, Andrew Holden and Abi Miller were arrested after police cut them loose. In an interview with the Progress, an activist with the UVa Labor Action Group was shocked with the arrests, saying “To see [Graber-Grace] taken away as a criminal has really hurt me a lot.” George Loper has the full article on his website, in addition to a press release from the four arrestees.
