SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – At least two law enforcement officers were injured Monday during a clash with members of the Occupy movement who were at the state Capitol to protest a rally by South Africa Project
[quote]About 45 people with the South African Project peacefully rally on the south side of the Capitol. The group obtained a permit to rally from the CHP.[/QUOTE]
About 50 members of Occupy Oakland began throwing cans and bottles at the South Africa group and at the officers. The Occupy members then rushed the officers as people with the pro-whites group rushed into the parking garage.
A city police officer was injured when a member of the Occupy group jumped on him, and a CHP officer was hurt after being struck by an object. Both were taken from the scene by ambulance.
At least two Occupy members were arrested.
The violence abated after a large contingent of law enforcement arrived at the scene, about one block from the Capitol.
