"Occupy Boston Gets Eviction Notice"

After a judge ruled on Tuesday that the act of occupation isn’t protected speech, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and the one-percenters who run the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy moved quickly today to order the eviction of Occupy Boston, 70 days after protesters encamped in Dewey Square next to the Federal Reserve Bank. The protesters, given until midnight to leave, have packed up most of the infrastructure of the occupation — the library, the food and medical tents, and the like, but are planning a dance party for the gathering crowd.
