Occupy Detroiters leave park ahead of deadline
Most participants in the Occupy Detroit movement have ended their stay in a downtown park as a permit for their
presence neared an end.
Last week, the Detroit City Council gave Occupy Detroit protesters a one-week extension until Monday night to remain at Grand Circus Park.
About 150 people were taking part in the protest that began Oct. 14. WJRT-TV reported Monday night that most participants were gone hours ahead of the deadline.
The city last month denied a request for a 45-day permit.
It wasn't immediately known if any of the protesters remained at the park late Monday. The Associated Press left a message for Detroit police seeking comment.
