Brother Ali Arrested in Minneapolis

See also

Minnesota hip hop artist Brother Ali was arrested along with 12 other protesters in South Minneapolis. Ali’s act of civil disobedience was part of an ongoing occupation of a foreclosed home in South Minneapolis. Over 125 people had rallied in support of a family fighting against a bank error to keep their home. Ali was the first to willingly cross police lines and be arrested for trespassing on the foreclosed property, and was one of the only protesters to be arrested without making a public statement. Instead, Ali remained silent and stoic as police placed him in handcuffs.
