Occupy Pittsburgh Protestors Vague About Eviction
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police put of signs at every entrance to Mellon Green where the Occupy Pittsburgh movement has been set up since October.
The signs tell the protestors they have to go.
Thursday, a judge ruled in favor of BNY Mellon. The bank wants Occupy Pittsburgh out of the park because they say the protest presents a safety hazard.
“You can’t evict an idea,” one of the protestors told reporters.
Occupy protestors have until Monday to move out, but some of them would not tell KDKA’s Brenda Waters if they planned to leave.
“I don’t think you are going to get a definitive answer,” Mel Packer said. “There are people who may decide that they wish to resist the order and risk arrest.”
If the protestors do not leave the park by Monday, BNY Mellon will have to file a request for eviction.
