Four activists climbed up the flagpoles outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in downtown Cleveland, to display a banner demanding a ban on fracking and knocking down the wall with Mexico.
Police took them into custody moments after they climbed down the poles around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The Rock Hall released a statement about 8:45 a.m. which read:
“The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is an icon of free speech. This week our home city of Cleveland faces the task of safely hosting thousands of convention-goers and visitors. We encourage free expression but discourage illegal actions that stress our first responders. Please continue to express yourself but do so safely and legally.”
In a news release, the activists said they demand that the Republican National Convention not “Trump” communities.
