DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Anti-Wall Street protesters have ignored police orders to get a permit and limit their encampment to one tent in downtown Duluth.
The demonstrators put up a second tent Monday night and have failed to buy a permit to occupy the Civic Center plaza. Some protesters say the cost of the insurance is too much.
City Councilor Sharla Gardner asked police Chief Gordon Ramsay and the city attorney to waive the insurance fee, but was unsuccessful.
Ramsay met with three protesters on Monday and repeated his message. Demonstrations are allowed, but occupiers need a permit for an overnight structure.
The chief tells WDIO-TV arrests could come at any time if protesters do not comply.
