Breaking News—Occupy Boston Encampment Cleared by Police


At 5 AM this morning, Boston Police moved in and began tearing down the 10 week old camp of Occupy Boston in a move that was expected since Wednesday's ruling by a Suffolk Superior Court Judge that the protestors were not engaging in “protected speech”. Since then the protestors had been playing a waiting game after Boston Mayor Thomas Menino gave them a midnight Thursday deadline to leave Dewey Square. This tension, as well as live coverage of the raid and aftermath, was captured on Boston.com as they collated twitter feeds. There were no reports of violence or injuries during the raid in which at 46 people were arrested, apparently for non-violent resistance.

Breaking News : Occupy Boston Remains Past Deadlines, Police Tour Site


The deadline imposed by the city for Occupy Boston to vacate their camp at Dewey Square has passed, and the protestors, although there are fewer, are still there. There were as many as 1,000 supporters as the deadline approached, but as the night progressed, the numbers diminished. This morning Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis toured the site and met with some of the remaining protestors. UWS will remain on top of this breaking news story. Stay tuned to UWS Digital News and Occupy Boston and Boston.com  for up to the minute updates.
