DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The City of Dallas is prepared to kick the ‘Occupy Dallas’ protestors out of Pioneer Plaza on Wednesday because of permit issues with the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ offshoot group. An email sent by the city on Tuesday evening stated that the protest group had failed to meet an insurance requirement – purchasing a million dollar policy by Tuesday night.

By failing to meet that portion of an agreement, the city can begin enforcing local laws for things like noise, curfew and sleeping in public.

Some protestors are afraid of being arrested. But others, like Dana Callahan, do not think that anyone should be forced to leave. “I think that’s ridiculous,” Callahan said. “This is a public park. I live in Dallas and my taxes go to support this park. And I think they should be able to stay here 24/7.”

“It’s going to be a long process,” said protestor Manuel Gonzalez. “We need to be smart about it.”

To calm fears, a police officer spoke with the group on Tuesday night, saying that they will be fine as long as they are peaceful and obey the laws. But both sides appear to be taking a ‘wait and see’ attitude.
