This was reported at the OccupyDC.org site.

There was violence Friday night, but peaceful Occupy DC protesters did not perpetrate it.

In the video below, a man that available witnesses have identified as a police officer appears to put his hands around the neck of Georgia Pearce, one of the women who was later struck and injured by the hit-and-run driver who police officers at the scene allowed to drive away that night.

This is yet another example of a series of violent actions against  peaceful Occupy DC protesters on Friday night.

Mayor Gray and MPD Chief Lanier should condemn the violence in this video and make clear that violence against peaceful protesters will not be tolerated.

City employees including the police, whose health care benefits, compensation and collective bargaining rights have recently come under attack, are part of the 99%, and deserve a better world and a better future.

We have had a calm relationship with law enforcement during recent weeks and we hope to move forward peacefully with them in the future.
