WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:


Occupy Tampa demonstrators say that late this morning Tampa Police told them to remove of all their gear from the sidewalk along Ashley Drive. Police also confiscated one of the tables groups use to distribute information.

Skylar Winslow is one of the “Tampa 6” who was arrested last Friday for lying down on the sidewalk during the day.

Earlier in the day, around sunrise, we spoke with Greg Priem, who was also arrested last Friday. He said there have been plans to organize a cleanup of Curtis Hixon Park tomorrow at 4 p.m. and that Occupy Tampa demonstrators have been complying with police orders.
