Cecily is an occupier (Occupy Wall Street protestor) who was beaten into a seizure at Zuccotti Park by the NYPD. Her breast grabbed from behind by a cop, her kneed jerk reaction was to elbow the assaulter. She was refused initial medical care, and just has finished a couple months in jail at Rikers Island a few weeks ago. This happened March 17th 2012 on the 6th month anniversary of occupy. Our co host Al was at the protest where Cecily was assaulted with others, and has himself been arrested with occupy multiple times which he wrote a book about, he also knows an occupier he believes is still imprisoned at Rikers, which has terrible conditions. Chris and Al do an exclusive interview with Cecily on the persecution of activism in America.
