Raheem DeVaughn Arrested in Support of OccupyDC

Soul/R&B crooner Raheem DeVaughn was arrested yesterday (October 16), while taking part in Occupy DC, a movement to protest the jobs situation in the U.S.

DeVaughn was arrested at approximately 6:00 PM along with American educator-friend-colleague, Dr. Cornell West & a number of others.

According to OccupyDC.com, OccupyDC is the Occupy Together Movement’s presence in our Nation’s Capital. Inspired by the courageous stand taken by Occupy Wall Street, OccupyDC is a space where the 99% of Americans being shut out of our economic and political system come together to identify the common problems and work on solutions.
