The Occupy activists camping out in the Malieveld park in The Hague have no intention of breaking up their camp on Sunday evening.
The city council wants the activists to leave because the winter regulations for homeless people will come into effect on Sunday evening. The council says the regulations apply to Occupy activists as well. “For their own health”, a council spokesperson said. “It is irresponsible to be sleeping outside in this kind of weather.”
However, a spokesperson for the activists argues they are well prepared for the cold weather. “We have warm clothing,” he said. “We have not been out here demonstrating for the past 100 days because we have nothing better to do.”
