Plaza protest gets heated after police walk into group of activists

1 min read

Homeless advocates continued their so-called occupation of Reno City Plaza today. Some were expecting to get arrested. They had been told by Reno Police officers since Friday to vacate the area by noon today.

The notice handed out by police said the area needed cleaning.

“They told us to go to the Cares Campus and asked us if we needed services,” advocate Lily Baran said, while laughing.

The protesters began camping at the plaza, across from City Hall, last week. They are demanding a meeting with city officials and an end to the scheduled sweeps to clear homeless encampments.

Four Reno Police officers waded into the group of about 60 people at about noon where some have been camping for nearly six days. They initially said little. Things got heated as the group chanted. But others came by and began yelling at the gathering, disrupting the group.

Protestors said the police were baiting them, waiting for somebody to get violent.
