Occupy Little Rock delays legal action

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2012 at 3:39 PM

Occupy Little Rock, which had said yesterday it would sue today to block its eviction from its six-month protest site at 4th and Ferry, has put off action for 24 hours and delayed a news conference that had been scheduled for 5 p.m. today.

It says negotiations are continuing with the city on an alternate protest site. The city has said it wants the current site for parking during Riverfest and the summer tourist season. Said a release:

Occupy Little Rock believes that a good deal with the city is still attainable and hopes for a push back of a few days concerning the May 16th 7:00 am eviction from the current protest site.

A private, nonprofit has signaled a willingness for Occupy LR to use some vacant property it owns in central Little Rock. That would be a win for the city and Occupy. But I'm guessing city zoning rules will be a factor in that relocation, too.

I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
