Twenty-five people were arraigned yesterday in Minneapolis on various charges ranging from trespassing to resisting arrest. They’re part of a larger movement that is resisting the redirection of a state highway to the largest mall in the U.S., the Mall of America. The proposed rerouting would take the road through sacred land and one of the last remaining wild areas in Minneapolis. Solstice, is one of dozens of people who had been occupying a row of houses in southern Minneapolis, which they call "Mini-Haha" free state.
