Just a few weeks after moving into McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza, Occupy DC stood out from its counterparts across the country because it hadn't clashed with police, it hadn't been threatened with eviction and it hadn't seen the mass arrests that marked so many other Occupy encampments. These days, Occupy DC stands out simply because it's one of the last major Occupy camps still standing. Occupy Baltimore, one of the last holdouts, was evicted last week. Occupy Wall Street, the original, is long gone, evicted by police in a violent, mid-November raid. Occupy Philadelphia and Occupy LA were evicted within days of each other late last month, and Occupy Boston was kicked out of the park in early December. In Richmond, Occupiers voluntarily and peacefully broke camp this week. In Denver, protesters set fires when police tried to evict them late Monday night; nine were arrested.
