Occupy Chattanooga moved

Occupy Chattanooga Protesters were removed from Hamilton County’s property and their belongings have been placed back onto the City of Chattanooga’s property. 

Chattanooga Police Officers explained the occupiers the city ordinances in regards to a peaceful protest.  There have not been issues with the occupiers violating any city code so far and the Police Department looks forward to keep it that way, according to officials.  The Chattanooga Police Department will by no means stop anyone from standing or sitting on sidewalks who is peacefully protesting; however, city code is clear that no one shall obstruct a sidewalk and there shall be no structures, tents, camps, or fires on city property.
