“Three women were arrested on Tuesday after climbing a flagpole near the site of this week’s U.S. Republican National Convention and hanging a banner protesting the party’s presidential candidate, Donald Trump. “Don’t Trump our communities,” read the banner hung near Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Using a ladder truck, fire officials brought down the protesters and the banner, which also had an anti-fracking message. “They actually climbed the flagpole and hung a banner and our officers responded and made the arrests,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams told reporters. “They were arrested for criminal mischief.” He did not identify the people arrested. A Reuters witness who saw the incident said they were all women.”
