No police. Hardly anyone there. I described the signs. Here are photos of them plus one of a homeless man who seemed quite mellowed out right where he was.


The last I heard, there was a court decision allowing the Occupiers to remain there.

that homeless guy

There is another holdout at Freedom Plaza. Good luck to them.
