Occupy Las Cruces
Notice of Eviction
City officials notified demonstrators that they must purchase $12 per-night-per-tent camping permits if they wished to remain on city park property. They stated that evictions would begin at 11 p.m. on Nov. 3 for those without permits. Occupy Las Cruces participants responded by calling on supporters to come to the park immediately to stand firm against the city's "violation of First Amendment rights." Supporters of the Movement provided more than enough donations to buy camping permits for all Occupy protesters. The police were satisfied, and said there would be no action against protesters "tonight or for the foreseeable future."
