    Ya know what pisses the fuck out of me..... they feed these low lives. Why dont they take all of this food and feed the hungry and poor?

    I guess they don't really care about the poor. Just the patina of caring about the "poor"

    Despite protesters' pleas, park closing hours to remain...

    Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2011 - 12:24 pm

    Two weeks have passed since Occupy <My Town> protesters first took hold of downtown's <My Town>. They have set up small shelters and a first-aid station, created a bank of laptop computers linked to the Internet and conducted several rallies.

    What they still don't have is a common call for grand social change.

    There is no single global or economic cause unifying the <My Town> movement. However, by demanding to remain in the park at all hours, protesters have waded into a local political issue that predates their demonstration by years: the fight by homeless activists against the city's anti-camping ordinances.

    "Our issue? We want to be able to stay here overnight," said S.T., 27, who recently dropped out of <local> College :cuckoo: to help coordinate Occupy <My Town> presence in the park. "After that's resolved, then we'll start to talk."

    That demand appears unlikely to be granted anytime soon. Despite the calls of protesters who waved signs inside City Hall and set up vigil outside the building, the <My Town> City Council decided ...to continue enforcing the city's anti-camping rules and to not grant a permit allowing protesters to remain in a city park past closure hours.
    City police will keep clearing out the park across the street from City Hall at 11 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on the weekends.

    Councilman S.C. had proposed to allow the protesters to keep their gear in the park overnight, but that plan was not moved forward by the council.

    Mayor.... said he would meet with protest organizers over the next few days and listen to their "thoughts and concerns."
    "No one here disagrees with your right to protest and have your voices heard in a real way," the mayor said.

    City officials worry that if they allow the Occupy <My Town> people to camp at the park, they would have to make a similar exception for....a group of homeless people and their advocates that has been pushing for a sanctioned spot where the homeless can camp at night.
    Police Chief ...– whose department had arrested 57 protesters as of Monday night – recently said, "If you allow one group (to stay in a park overnight), you have to allow all groups." And many other groups, the chief said, are not as peaceful as the Occupy <My Town>protesters have been.

    Occupy <My Town> protesters complain that it takes them hours each day to break down and set up camp. * Waaaaaa* They say enforcing the camping ordinance is a waste of police time and resources.

    The core group of Occupy <My town> protesters stands at a couple of dozen. But on weekends and on some evenings, that number has risen to at least 200. Many of the demonstrators are young; some are homeless, while others have full-time jobs. Over the weekend, renowned anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was among those arrested.
