Yesterday’s first anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement was marked with a protest and some arrests, just for old times sake. Among those arrested, cartoonist Molly Crabapple. The anxiety of her experience was somewhat dimmed by the modern phenomenon of being able to live-tweet your arrest and incarceration:


Although handcuffed, Crabapple was actually tweeting behind her back, so still pretty impressive. Her phone was eventually taken away when she was jailed.

When reported by Warren Ellis a #freemollycrabapple hashtag was set up and Al Jazeera was alerted, and the incident gained quite a bit of press.


Eventually Crabapple and the others arrested were let go.
