Occupy Seattle protesters gathered outside the Greenwood home of  Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn on Friday to complain about the eviction of a homeless encampment known as “The Jungle” from a Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood.

Occupy spokeswoman Aliana Bazara said about 20 protesters were meeting with the mayor this evening hoping to resolve the issue.

The protesters have threatened to camp out at the mayor’s house if their concerns are not addressed.
