Duluth City Hall sets deadline for Occupy encampment
No movement in talks could mean the end of the Occupy movement in Duluth.
Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said in a news conference Thursday afternoon that the Occupy group at Civic Center Plaza has until 11:59 p.m. Sunday to remove its tents and other items.
Ramsay said talks with Occupy members have gone nowhere and the camp has "become a major distraction at City Hall" that was also taxing the police force. "It can't continue," he said.
