We Can Occupy

You don't need a tent to Occupy.

Occupy DC given notice to remove “tent of dreams”

on January 31, 2012

At about 10:15 the morning of Tuesday, Jan 31st, Sgt. Reid and other members of the National Park Service arrived at McPherson Square to tell Occupy DC that they wanted the Tent of Dreams to be taken down from around the General McPherson statue, and that they wanted us to comply with the new regulations against bedding material. The police said that we would still be able to perform a symbolic protest without bedding – ignoring the fact that, beyond symbolism, many people depend on Occupy DC at McPherson Square for shelter, sustenance and a cause.

At noon on Tuesday we are having a General Assembly to decide as a community how to proceed. Sgt. Reid indicated that NPS will return in the afternoon “with more details.” Also this afternoon, the 23,000+ petition signatures from www.SaveOccupyDC.org will be delivered to McPherson Square.
