New York City police are continuing their crackdown against photographers and journalists during the Occupy Wall Street anniversary protest, arresting a photographer this morning because she did not have NYPD-issued press credentials, according to reports on Twitter.
Julia Reinhart, who is also a member of the National Press Photographer Association, was wearing her NPPA identification at the time when she stopped to take a photo.
A photo of her in handcuffs was posted on Instagram by Moccupychi.
It is not clear what charges she is facing but another photographer who was arrested Saturday night was released after four hours and said he was never informed of the charges against him.
Reinhart has been covering the protests since Saturday night, posting almost 400 photos on Flickr under the following description:
On Saturday, September 15 2012, occupiers from around the country gathered in New York City in Washington Square Park for a town square meeting of education, discussion, and general reunion. After a peaceful day spent catching up with one another, the group went on a march to downtown Manhattan and Zuccotti Park. NYPD aggressively intervened with a peaceful march, randomly arrested people for wearing bandanas, carrying signs, carrying banners, marching on the sidewalk, standing on a sidewalk, and finally sleeping on a sidewalk. All in all 35 protesters were arrested throughout the day.
