OccupyBoston protesters won a victory from the courts this week: a judge granted them a temporary restraining order that says, until Dec. 1, no one can evict them -- not the police, nor the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy nor the mayor. The Occupy organizers sought the ruling themselves, after witnessing their counterparts in New York and other cities get the boot, sometimes in violent clashes with police.
And so the demonstration in Dewey Square persists. On Thursday, thousands gathered there, including trade union leaders, as part of a national day of protest for job creation. (Check out the video attached to this story.)
What do you think? Should the camp in Dewey Square be allowed to stay? Are the local Occupy protesters encouraging a meaningful conversation about our economy and political leadership?
