The group behind the banner says the climber isn't connected to the earlier demonstration.
Tourists in NY no doubt wanted to see the Statue of Liberty up close on this Independence Day, but thanks to these protesters' illegal behavior, they'll have to wait until next year.
"This incident caused disruption to thousands of visitors on one of the busiest days of the year at the Statue of Liberty", US Park Police Major Pamela Smith said.
In 2017, Okoumou was arrested for trespassing, obstruction of government administration, and misdemeanor assault during a protest at the offices of New York state's department of labor on Varick Street in New York City, the New York Daily News reports.
"We don't know whether she had this planned before she ever got to Liberty Island or whether it was a spur-of-the-moment decision", Walker said. I guess the whole debate that's going on about that. She threatened to kick off the ladder. "At first she was being a little combative, then she was willing to cooperate with us. As long as the three of us come down safe that's all that matters", said Glacken.

The Republican governor's order says the action was in "accordance" with an order issued by President Donald Trump . Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in their killings.
Okoumou is a member of the group Rise and Resist. The group initially tweeted that the climber had no connection to the protest.
"She's very dedicated to the resistance generally, but specifically to the issues surrounding immigration and the treatment immigrants have been receiving from ICE and Customs and Border Control", Jay Walker, one of the group organizers, told the New York Post.
Television footage on Wednesday showed two officers, outfitted in harnesses and ropes, slowly approaching a woman and grabbing her as she clung to the sloping side of the more-than-300-foot-high (91 meter) statue, moments after she tried unsuccessfully to scale Lady Liberty's robes. "It was not part of our action", Quinn said. "She's a free citizen in the world-it's a choice she made", he said. She wasn't the only protester arrested at the Statue of Liberty on Wednesday.
Okoumou was scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate for an arraignment hearing, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan said.
Okoumou, who goes by her middle name, Patricia, sported a T-shirt reading "White Supremacy is Terrorism" that she had worn inside-out in court.
