Footage from the scene showed the officers wearing harnesses and using ladders to scale the statue’s baseFootage from helicopters showed her sitting at the base of the statue, occasionally lying on her stomach and kicking her feet up behind her, ABC station WABC-TV reports.Okoumou was seen holding a t-shirt displaying the words “Rise and Resist” and “Trump Care Makes Us Sick.”She wasn’t the only protester arrested at the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday. Earlier that afternoon, seven people were apprehended for holding a banner that read “ABOLISH ICE” off the base below the statue, which is technically called Fort Hood.Rise and Resist is the name of a protest group that arranged the banner display earlier Wednesday, and they tweeted that the climber “has no connection to our #abolishice action earlier today.”“Rise and Resist planned a banner drop today at the Statue of Liberty. This action did not include the climber on the statue. Our action was completed earlier. While it was not part of our action, our first priority and concern is for the safety of the climber,” they wrote in another tweet.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
