Time to go, SCCC tells Occupy Seattle camp

Occupy Seattle is being told to occupy somewhere other than the Seattle Central Community College campus.

About 100 campers aligned with the protest movement were given notice on Tuesday they have 72 hours to find another spot.

The notice comes after the Occupy movement obtained a temporary restraining order blocking the school’s trustees from banning camping on college property for health and safety reasons. A judge in Thurston County has lifted that ban, according to SCC communications director Patricia Paquette.

Paquette said college President Dr. Paul Killpatrick told representatives of the group that he hopes for a peaceful resolution, but that the campers will ultimately decide the outcome by whether they cooperate with the order and leave.

The Occupy followers have been camped on the campus’s South Plaza since they were driven from downtown’s Westlake Plaza by police at the end of October.
