At least it’s warmer indoors. About 100 members of the Occupy Wall Street movement’s Chicago branch were arrested when they stood their ground early Sunday.

The demonstrators tried to stay at Congress Plaza in the city’s Grant Park, which closes at 11 p.m. Police moved in and placed barricades around the area shortly after that time, and began taking people into custody at 1 a.m.

The protests were peaceful—if noisy—and the police said none of the activists resisted arrest. Occupy Chicago spokesman Joshua Kaunert vowed the movement will continue.
