Description

This “Police Line Do Not Cross” tape was picked up at a protest against the construction of a new portion of Highway 55, otherwise named Hiawatha Avenue, in Minneapolis. The protests over the expansion of Highway 55 came to a head on December 20, 1998. After a four month occupation of a group of homes slated for demolition by activists known as the Minnehaha Free State, Governor Arne Carlson authorized a raid on the encampment, known as “Operation Cold Snap,” which involved more than 600 police officers. The protesters were removed and the site was leveled. Protests continued throughout 1999.
