Though their numbers had fallen from the 400 people organizers claimed at the height of Tuesday night’s activities, Occupy Seattle protesters filled Westlake Park overnight in spite of an announcement from City Hall that the tent encampment would be “asked” to move.
The protest is part of the Occupy Wall Street effort that began this summer to return “the US back into the hands of it’s individual citizens.”
With this going on at Sea-Tac, CHS figured it was the least we could do to venture across I-5 to visit the protest.
In a statement released by the Seattle mayor’s office, protesters were told they would face possible arrest for trespassing if they remained camped in the park past 10p Tuesday. There was no visible police presence near the park as of midnight. Meanwhile, some of the organizers of events and demonstrations scheduled for the park have said they “welcome the presence” of the Occupy Seattle protest.
