Mayor Landrieu to Announce Plans for Occupy NOLA Camp
Posted on Dec 2, 2011 in Local Issues
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will hold a press conference this afternoon at 3:30 pm (CST) to announce the city’s plans with regard to the Occupy camp that has taken up residence in Duncan Plaza across from City Hall.
The Occupy NOLA Camp sprang up as an offshoot of the notable Occupy camp in New York City to voice frustration about American economic policy and income inequality.
NOLA’s Occupy Camp has been in place for a number of weeks and has usually supported numbers of approximately 100 protesters.
It is unclear what exactly the city proposes for the camp but it is clear that a focus on maintaining good public relations will be paramount. Administration officials and police departments in New York and California have recently come under heightened public scrutiny due to reports of excessive force used by police during the dispersement of their respective Occupy camps.
