Vietnam War veterans were arrested Monday night at the New York City Vietnam War memorial for staying past the memorial's 10 p.m. curfew time.
The veterans had gathered at the memorial to protest the 12th year of the war in Afghanistan.
Law enforcement reportedly issued verbal warnings to the vets, telling them they would be arrested if they didn't leave.
The vets were reading the names of dead soldiers and chanting "Whose side are you on?" at the police.
The vets then handcuffed themselves together, refusing to leave. The group of veterans have done similar demonstrations in years past.
And that's when police began walking protesters into a police van.
It is unclear how many were arrested.
