Cartoonist says her Occupy Oakland arrest felt ‘extremely fascist’

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

imageFreelance cartoonist Susie Cagle, who was arrested during the night of violence that followed the Occupy Oakland general strike, tells the Washington Post there was no mistaking that the cops knew she was press when they scooped her up with about 100 protesters:

“The arresting officer knew I was press. When he came up to me and saw my [Alternet] press pass — which was bright pink-orange, like coral — he even said he knew my comics.”


“We were split up by gender immediately,” Cagle says. “It all felt extremely fascist — the aggression of it. It was very terrifying — the sound and the teargassing.”
