Occupy Boston Faces Eviction

Thursday, December 08, 2011

 

A Massachusetts judge has ruled against the Occupy Boston protestors, and lifted the temporary restraining order that was protecting the camp from police removal.

In the ruling, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Frances McIntyre found that “…while Occupy Boston protestors may be exercising their expressive rights during their protest, they have no privilege under the First Amendment to seize and hold the land on which they sit.”

The judge went on to say that the Occupation is essentially a “hostile act,” and “an assertion of possession against the rights of another.”

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has encouraged protestors to disband, and has suggested that he is willing to remove them by force.
