CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

19 Action News has confirmed Cleveland City Hall has decided not to renew a permit for Occupy Cleveland protestors to stay on a portion of Public Square.

The protestors can still be there with signs, but they have to remove a tent, camping equipment and other belongings. The number of protestors had dwindled in recent weeks.

The suspects in the bridge bomb plot had ties to the Occupy Cleveland protest movement, but they were not organizers.

According to Occupy Cleveland, the movement will not end when their tent comes down. Occupy Cleveland plans a continued presence in the Mayor Tom Johnson/Free Speech Quadrant of Public Square, and participation in events around the city.

Due to the agreement made with the city on October 26, Occupy Cleveland has access to the Mayor Tom Johnson/Free Speech quadrant 24/7 and plans to utilize it for movement activities.
