Occupy Cleveland can demonstrate on Public Square 24 hours a day

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland agreed today to issue permits allowing Occupy Cleveland to demonstrate on Public Square 24 hours a day after the group sought an injunction in federal court.

The Cleveland officials agreed to issue permits for the group to demonstrate from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. after both parties met with Judge Dan Aaron Polster this morning in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, said Occupy Cleveland's lawyer, J. Michael Murray. Since both parties reached agreement, this means that the court does not have to rule on the injunction sought by the group.

Cleveland has a curfew banning people from city parks during those hours. Eleven Occupy Cleveland members were arrested Friday for breaking the curfew law. Most of those charged had also been encamping on Public Square, as the group had done for about two weeks. Neither today's agreement, nor the request for the injunction, dealt with that issue.

Murray said the group sought an injunction based on grounds that the city was denying the group's members their right to free speech by limiting access to Public Square. The curfew ordinance also allows the city to grant permits during the curfew hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. It is on the later ground that both parties reached agreement, Murray said.
