AP: Newark to Evict “Occupy” Protesters

The witching hour is approaching for Occupy Newark protesters who have camped in a city park for the past two and a half months.

The Associated Press obtained a letter sent by city clerk Robert Marasco that says the group’s permit will run out at 9 p.m. Wednesday. But the dozens of protesters who have occupied Military Park in downtown Newark since mid-November will be given until 9 p.m. Thursday to leave the area.

The city council had adopted an ordinance to give the group permission to stay in the park, and the most recent extension was to expire Wednesday.

In the letter dated Tuesday, the council tells the group it “has been a pleasure to work with your organization.”
