Occupy London protesters to meet today to discuss disband demand from the city

LONDON, Ont. - Occupy London protesters will meet this morning to discuss the city's demand that they disband their tent city at Victoria Park.

If the protesters don't move their camp they run the risk of facing tickets or arrest.

About 150 people met at the park last night but only 50 or so slept over, which violates a bylaw against occupying the park during overnight hours.

Protesters will meet again this morning to discuss whether to move their camp a few blocks away to St. Paul's Cathedral which has reportedly offered them space.

Mayor Joe Fontana and Police Chief Brad Duncan haven't given the protesters a deadline, hoping the protesters will leave on their own.

They say while they support peaceful daytime demonstrations, they don't want public parks turned into tent cities and occupied overnight.

Some group members say they'll try to speak to Fontana at noon when the mayor hosts his latest virtual town hall meeting at the Covent Garden Market. (AM980)
