Occupy Dallas Faces Possible Eviction Tuesday

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Occupy Dallas protestors will have one more night at their downtown camp before they learn if they must pull up stakes and move out.

The City of Dallas doesn’t want the protestors using City Hall facilities and littering the lawn with posters.

The city says it’s allowing the group to stay in place until a federal judge hears the case tomorrow morning.

Occupy Dallas formed over a month ago and is set up behind City Hall.

According to the group’s lawyer, Jonathan Winocour, the judge has questions about federal jurisdiction in the case.  Winocour says he has asked Judge Jane Boyle to kick the case to state court, where Occupy Dallas originally filed suit.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9:30 Tuesday morning.

    Occupy Dallas is starting to adopt an anti-corruption platform that will garner much more respect. An Occupy Dallas member’s page http://owwc.gu.ma , supporting a business owner who lost millions of dollars to a corrupt officials seems to illustrate this adaption.

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants

    The Dallas PD, City Hall and the Dallas City Council are all one big barrel of thugs, crooks and cronnies.

    The answer to 1984 is 1776.

    I don’t mind protestors but I do mind squatters who don’t really have anything better to do. Change comes from doing something productive. Run for congress or support someone for congress who can change the way the system works.

      I agree. To have been this long, these people can’t have jobs, and just think about it, the taxpapers are the ones paying for extra police, clean up, etc. Get a life and join the real world.

    OWS and the Tea Party both recognize the need for and the desire for change.


  5. tea-person says:

    And as we saw with Katrina, storms on East Coast, wild fires in Texas – government can’t really take care of the people, they can only manage them and apply bandaids. When it gets down to it, the government (pick one-city, state, federal) will have IT’S way with the people……until the people change government.
