Occupy San Francisco is here to stay. Well, at least until the cops break it up.
Occupy SF is refusing to relocate its very distinct camp site near the Financial District to a less conspicuous site in the Mission District, claiming that being close to the banks they are protesting helps keep their anti-Wall Street message alive. The group reportedly made this decision at its general assembly meeting last night after a heated debate.
As far as we can tell, the decision means two things: 1. The encampment will remain at Justin Herman Plaza, much to the city's chagrin; and 2. It increases the likelihood that it will be raided by SFPD soon. Very soon.
