UPDATE: as of 4:45PM Occupy Houston was told by HPD that we will NOT be kicked out of Hermann Square Plaza tonight.
On October 5th Mayor Parker announced that Occupy Houston could NOT be evicted from Hermann Square Plaza, yet today demonstrators were told by HPD’s Criminal Intelligence Division that any occupiers would be kicked out at 7pm or face arrest. The video below shows the mayor clearly issuing the order that Occupy Houston CANNOT be evicted. Start watching at 1:20.
Occupy Houston is currently talking with local media in the hopes we can get good coverage of what is looking to be a showdown. COME OUT!
We need everyone at Hermann Square Plaza NOW! Come out come out!
