The Occupy Las Cruces (New Mexico) demonstration is a part of the Occupy Movement which began on Sept. 17, 2011 with the original Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York City.



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."[1]
