Occupy Fresno protesters face eviction from park

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

The demonstrators say that they are ready and willing to go to jail, and their permit to remain in the park expired at midnight.

Occupy Fresno protesters have been camping out at Courthouse Park for more than three weeks now.

Last week, a notice was issued to people at the park that they needed to leave by 12 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Fresno County officials say they will give protestors a two day grace period, but the Sheriff's Department says their time is up.

A county ordinance prohibits people from being at the park from midnight until 6 a.m. and violators face a misdemeanor.

Occupy Fresno protestors say that if they are arrested, they will return to the park once they are released from jail.
