Scene: Protest Outside of City Hall

WHERE: Nathan Phillips Square

WHEN: January 17, around 7 p.m.

WHAT: During Tuesday night’s budget deliberations, a crowd of people gathered outside the doors of City Hall to protest budget cuts—some of the same cuts that were ultimately reversed by council. What began as a peaceful demonstration eventually escalated into a clash with police, whom protesters say used pepper spray. Four protesters were reportedly arrested.
