Occupy Richmond to occupy Monroe Park

Kanawha Plaza has been unoccupied by protesters for nearly a week. Now the Occupy Richmond protesters say they’re moving to Monroe Park later this week. [...] We may be heading for another clash between police and the protesters. Police say the same rules apply – you’re not allowed to stay in city parks after dark.

Richmond Police were forced to clear Monroe Park earlier this year after a 10-day occupation of the park by a group protesting the treatment of the homeless in Richmond.
