Occupy Denver told to get out of park at night
Thursday, Governor John Hickenlooper, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, and Attorney General John Suthers announced that Occupy Denver protesters could no longer camp out on state park land in front of the capitol.
Protesters continue to occupy the space, and issued this statement:
Occupy Denver openly and strongly condemns the premature response of Governor Hickenlooper, Mayor Hancock, Attorney General Suthers, Chief of Staff Roxane White, and the Colorado State Patrol. The group makes it clear that, regardless of any action taken by the State or City, the daily protest and occupation will continue unimpeded. Occupy Denver looks forward to a Sunrise Rally with Peter Boyles and KHOW in front of the State Capitol beginning at 5 AM on Friday, October 14th, and to this week’s mass rally and protest Saturday, October 15th, expected to draw no less than 2,000 supporters.
