At approximately 1:20 a.m ET Tuesday morning, Police allegedly attacked protesting U.S. military veterans and arrested 50 others with Occupy Boston.

The Boston Globe reports that arrested protesters were “put on [their] stomach, cable-tied, and dragged off …”

The AP reports the police were sent in to protect $150,000 worth of newly-planted shrubs at the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, site of a large Occupy Boston contingent. As news of the arrests spread across Twitter early Tuesday, several videos emerged that support the claim that members of  Veterans for Peace were attacked by the police.
