Civic Beat: Crack down on campout


County Board cracks down on OccupyMN campout

The Hennepin County Board put an end to the OccupyMN campout, ordering the removal of unattended personal items from Government Plaza and prohibiting sleeping on county grounds.

A resolution, passed unanimously by the seven-member board on Nov. 7, does not prohibit ongoing protesters from demonstrating on Government Plaza, but it made it impossible for the roughly three dozen of them to continue protesting around the clock.
