Hennepin County is putting new rules into effect Monday to prohibit protesters from sleeping on the plaza in downtown Minneapolis. The rules will also ban demonstrators from taping signs to county property or leaving personal items unattended.
Organizers tell Minnesota Public Radio the rules unfairly restrict their First Amendment rights. They say negotiate with county leaders and file a lawsuit if they can't reach a deal.
The UpTake continues to capture scenes from the protest: "We are not camping" reads the sign around the neck of of one of the organizers. "We are assembling peaceably to petition our Government for a redress of grievances. This is our permit."
