De la Guerra Plaza Reoccupied

Thursday, May 31, 2012

De la Guerra Plaza was briefly reoccupied this week. After moving indoors for the winter, Occupy Santa Barbara protesters returned to their original meeting place at 9 p.m. on Memorial Day. Seven stayed overnight without eliciting the attention of law enforcement personnel, but police asked the group to leave Tuesday night. A group of the protesters are pursuing an injunction against the city for enforcing curfew and camping restrictions at the public park. They were arrested and fined — some repeatedly — during a several-week stretch in the fall.
