Woman Climbing the Statue of Liberty on July 4th: ‘No Connection’ to Rise & Resist Protest
Police were seen on the base of the Statue of Liberty, apparently trying to verbally engage with Okoumou before physically apprehending her. Footage from the scene showed the officers wearing harnesses and using ladders to scale the statue's base.
Therese Patricia Okoumo spent her holiday scaling the base of the Statue of Liberty in protest of President Trump's immigration policies, which included separating migrant parents from their children at the US-Mexico border.
Police talk to a woman who climbed to the base of the Statue of Liberty in NY on July 4, 2018. The protester climbed all the way to the very base of the statue, itself, sitting just below Lady Liberty's raised heel. "I'm really sad for people who had to leave the island or who weren't able to get over here at all".
A source within the New York Police Department told CNN that the woman, who is part of the group Rise and Resist, was refusing to climb down from the statue until all children were released. "At first, she wasn't friendly with us, but we took the time to get a rapport with her so that took a while", he said.
The climber made about a 25-foot (8-meter) ascent from the monument's observation point, National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis said. "I don't think they have the right to co-opt the Statue of Liberty to do it".
A year earlier, a West Virginia man was sentenced to time served after calling in a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of Liberty Island, sending 3,200 people on boats back to lower Manhattan and New Jersey. It also was taking a closer look at the statue to see if there was any damage, though that's unlikely, he said.
