On Sunday, several National Parks Service workers started getting rid of some of the debris at the Occupy D.C. site at Freedom Plaza.
According to the Washington Post, the Park Service announced Jan. 27 that it would begin enforcing its long-standing regulation prohibiting camping on federal parkland Jan. 30. Protesters living at the two Occupy D.C. sites, including McPherson Square, were warned to stop camping overnight in the parks and remove all sleeping gear and other equipment — or risk arrest.
According to OccupyDC.org, the group of protesters are part of a nonviolent occupation of public space in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and Occupy movements everywhere. According to the website, the group is a grassroots movement empowering the 99 percent to have a say in returning the country to a just political and economic system.
There was no violence Sunday. Instead people gathered in groups and cried and talked amongst themselves.
