The Occupy movement has largely fallen silent over the last few weeks. But two Occupy Nashville protesters made plenty of noise with an all-out brawl at the movement’s encampment on Christmas Day.
The brawl, between two females,
was captured on video by a WTVF-TV photojournalist. And according to the
station, one woman (seen in green below) claims she’s three months
The station explains:
5′s videojournalist was on assignment at Legislative Plaza Sunday
covering the holiday celebration, when the angle of the story suddenly
changed. Two of the protestors started arguing with each other; one of
them was three-months pregnant. Harsh words led to hair pulling and
punching, and both of them landed on the ground.
While other protestors tried to
break up the situation, NewsChannel 5′s videographer called 911 for
help. Medics rushed to the scene and took the pregnant protestor to the
hospital to be checked out. Police started investigating the situation,
and charges may be filed.
But overall, protestors say it was an unconventional Christmas they can call a success, even if peace didn’t always prevail.
It’s unclear what started the argument, but one occupier interviewed by the station tried to explain away the violence.
“Anywhere you go there’s gonna to be anger, there’s gonna be problems,” she said.
