Gov. Hickenlooper says tent city at Occupy Denver can’t continue

Protesters say they won’t leave, will “fight”

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said protesters will not be allowed to stay overnight in the tent city that has grown near the Capitol. The governor made the announcement at a press conference with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, who read out the law that forbids overnight camping. The three alluded that police action was imminent but provided no details.
