Occupy Boston Must Get Out By Midnight

In a 25-page decision, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Frances McIntyre denied a motion the protesters filed that would protect them from eviction from their encampment in Dewey Square, a fate that has befallen similar protests across the country in recent weeks.

“While Occupy Boston protesters may be exercising their expressive rights during the protest, they have no privilege under the First Amendment to seize and hold the land on which they sit,” McIntyre wrote in her decision.


Mayor Thomas Menino told Occupy Boston protesters they must leave their encampment in Dewey Square by midnight Thursday or they will face eviction.“We’re going to ask the occupants of Dewey Square to be out there by midnight [Thursday],” said Menino. “[If they’re not] we’ll take further action.”


Yet -- in an imposing prelude to a possible showdown -- an Occupy Boston emergency text sent out before noon called on anyone who stands with the movement to "please make your way to Dewey Square TONIGHT. We need you!" Occupy Boston called an emergency general assembly at the downtown encampment at 1 this afternoon.

Article XIX. The people have a right, in an orderly and peaceable manner, to assemble to consult upon the common good; give instructions to their representatives, and to request of the legislative body, by the way of addresses, petitions, or remonstrances, redress of the wrongs done them, and of the grievances they suffer.

-Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

We should all keep an eye on this as it may be a turning point in the movement. Will things get violent in Boston tonight? We'll see.

Ok, so the midnight deadline has passed and a forceful eviction of the protesters is imminent. The live stream is showing thousands of protesters and police. Here we go, this is getting heated.

Since when did mayors have the right to do this?
Now that Occupy Toronto is gone from James Park i have notice how our local news network channel has been playing propaganda saying how how now thanks to those Occupy protesters they had to place fake grass on the park
big deal.

And already they showed news clips of dog owners walking there dogs like mindless drones.
