State Gives Occupy Boise Until Monday to Vacate

Gov. “Butch” Otter is giving Occupy Boise until Monday to pack up their encampment on state land just across from the state. Otter signed emergency legislation Tuesday that prohibits the protesters from camping on state-managed property. Occupy Boise set up tents on the grounds surrounding the old Ada County Courthouse in November and state lawmakers have been working to dispatch them since January. Otter says he will be contacting the group’s leadership to inform them of the deadline to vacate the state-owned property. The Department of Administration is responsible for the property and is expected clarify on Tuesday how it will enforce the new law. The state is hoping to avoid a confrontation, like has plagued other Occupy encampments across the county, when it bids the group goodbye. Occupy Boise says it is planning to vacate peacefully but will continue with its political actions.
