In downtown Denver this morning, authorities have mostly dismantled a tent city that had sprung up in Civic Center Park as part of the nationwide anti-Wall Street protests. The action followed an at times tense stand off between police and protesters that went through the early morning hours.
Outside the state capitol, the standoff between anti-Wall Street protesters and Colorado authorities has taken yet another turn. Governor John Hickenlooper said Thursday the Occupy Denver protesters cannot continue camping in the state-owned park overnight. But it’s still unclear whether authorities will start forcefully removing protesters as early as tonight.
