Cecily McMillan, a 25-year-old student and Occupy Wall Street activist,
was taken away in handcuffs to New York City’s Rikers Island prison
complex Monday after being convicted on trumped up charges
of assaulting a policeman during a protest two years ago.

The trial was apparently the last for Occupy Wall Street protesters,
nearly 3,000 of whom were arrested in a massive crackdown ordered
by New York City’s then mayor, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, in 2011 and 2012.

McMillan, who was herself brutally beaten by cops and suffered a seizure
in the March 17, 2012 incident, faces up to seven years imprisonment
when she is sentenced on May 19.
