With the media virtually mum on the frightening provisions included in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act, Occupy Wall Street organized some direct action on Tuesday that included a march as well as a “mic check” at Grand Central Station around 5PM.

Despite the lawful assembly, MTA police quickly moved in and arrested a woman who was leading the crowd in the organized chants, which apparently is illegal now. An OWS supporter said he overheard cops saying, “If she does it one more time [mic checks] go get her.” And so they did, without warning, even though MTA spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said, “It was a peaceful demonstration. It was loud, but it was peaceful.”

Another demonstrator was placed handcuffed and carried out by transit cops. According to the Daily News, there was a total of three arrests. Four others were reportedly given summonses.
