Both the General Assembly building and the Legislative Office Building on the adjacent block were closed. For the first time in the Moral Monday movement, people were refused entry or reentry to either building.
Early estimates of Moral Monday #12 arrests are at approximately 70 at this time. It is unknown how many (if any) arrests were made on the third floor.
This is a marked departure from earlier protests. Previous civil-disobedience actions involved peaceable assembly and compliance with arrests; no one has engaged in passive resistance. But tonight ... tonight was different.
I'll have a more complete report by morning. Because of my legal standing as a Moral Monday arrestee (June 10), I chose leave the building immediately and not risk another arrest and escalation of charges.
