Occupy San Diego protesters get new deadline to move their stuff

October 14, 2011 |  5:46 am

San Diego police have set a new 7 a.m. deadline for Occupy San Diego protesters in the City Hall plaza to remove their tents and other property or risk arrest.

The initial deadline had been midnight.

Dozens of protesters complied with the earlier deadline, some moving to Balboa Park. But others remained, with their signs, tables, chairs and tents still in the plaza.

Police have said that while protesters are welcome to remain, their property has to be removed in advance of a dance concert set for the plaza concourse.
