Protesters vow to stand their ground at Occupy DC camp

Protesters occupying two Washington parks say they will stand their ground if National Park Service police come calling Monday to enforce a law against camping.

"I'm going to do the best I can to stay here," said Emily Margaret, who has been staying at Occupy DC's McPherson Park camp. "If they want to arrest me, they can."

A noon Monday deadline for protesters to remove camping gear from the McPherson Park and Freedom Plaza came and went with no immediate move by police.

    There goes my 'mr knowitall' reputation. he he. Cuba? Huh? Are you nutz? I'd just end-up living in Florida you idiot. I'm old, but not THAT old. Plus Jeb's wife has Noriega blood in her. And she's been whispering in Jeb Bush's ear for years. Not to mention that high-pressure system that's been lingering off of Florida's coast for three straight years...ever since the world's 7 HAARP installations all fired-up at the same time. Who knows what that'll do to the weather/hurricanes/impotent aligators, etc. old people. 🙂

    It boils down to keeping federally insured deposit money from being gambled, casino style, by what used to be investment banks.

    So the general consensus is that the OWS doesnt have any real leadership & they havent laid out what exactly they are protesting correct? My vote would be they elect Philip 2 lead them as he has a vast amount of knowledge on the Fed needing to be audited!
