SEATTLE — An 84-year-old woman in Seattle became a face of the national Occupy Wall Street movement after she was hit with pepper spray during a Seattle march.
A Tuesday night photo of Dorli (Door-LEE) Rainey with the chemical irritant dripping from her chin quickly went viral, becoming one of the most striking images from the protests that have taken place in cities across the globe.
Rainey has been active in Seattle's liberal politics for decades and once ran for mayor. She says Wednesday that she showed up at the downtown protest to show her support.
Police say demonstrators were blocking a downtown intersection. Six people were arrested.
Rainey was not among those taken into custody. She says she has no plans to stop protesting, adding "I'm tough."
