A source told NBC News' Michelle Franzen that protesters were hoping Thursday's cleanup effort would be enough to allow them to stay in the park, but demonstrators were prepared to hold their ground if they were told to leave.
But the rules ban camping, tents or other structures, lying down on the ground, placing tarps or sleeping bags on the ground and the storage personal property -- everything the protesters have been doing since they set up on September 17.

That's a great idea, but hasn't there already been a case where people tried to do just that at a Bank of America and were blocked at the door?
Do you think it would be that easy, or would they simply take a bank holiday?

You know what gets me?!?!?! It's the insane hypocrisy of the US government...When the protests were going down in the middle east/north africa, the US backed the protesters and totally ignoring the rule of law, property rights, etc... of those respective sovereign nations....yet the same sentiment does not apply to US citizens with the constitutional right to peacefully assemble....
