Hooray!… Police Bring in Dump Trucks & Mop Up #Occupy Boston Garbage (Video)
No justice… No Peace…
The police arrived around 5 AM to mop up the remaining #Occupy Boston goons at the Dewey Square squatters camp.
The Boston Herald is following the action.
FOX News reported:
Police officers swept through Dewey Square early Saturday, tearing down tents at the Occupy Boston encampment and arresting dozens of protesters, bringing a peaceful end to the 10-week demonstration.
Officers began moving into the encampment at about 5 a.m. to “ensure compliance with the trespassing law,” police spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll said. The city had set a deadline for midnight Thursday for the protesters to abandon the site but police took no action until early Saturday, making Boston the latest city where officials moved to oust protesters demonstrating against what they call corporate greed and economic injustice.
As the officers moved in, about two dozen demonstrators linked arms and sat down in nonviolent protest and police soon began arresting them, according to the Boston Globe.
The protesters were “very accommodating” to the officers, Driscoll said. Forty-six people were arrested on charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct, police said. No injuries were reported.
The city brought in dump trucks for the trash after the protesters were removed.
