Yesterday morning, we reported about the impending eviction notice to Palm Beach Occupiers. Visibly dwarfed in size since the camp's last showdown, the remaining members were served their official order to leave by West Palm Beach police at 10 a.m.
Curious businessmen in suits watched from the sidewalk as police monitored the situation. The chief who served the notice stated he had a particular time in mind for the property to be clear, but officially a "reasonable amount of time" would be offered before additional measures would be taken.
Upon entering the camp, one noticed the "kitchen" already partly disassembled. Media were allowed in but were asked not to take photos of the kitchen to avoid sending any message of disarray.
When asked about plans moving forward, we heard discussions of individual plans as well as a collective plan to donate all of the remaining canned goods to a nearby homeless shelter.
Would it be correct to assume that this is the last stand of the Occupiers?
A camp member standing next to us smiled and said confidently, "We'll pop up again somewhere."
