People’s Parliament announces new phase, ends 24 hr occupation
Announcing a new phase in its operations, the People’s Parliament on Saturday said that it would end the 24-hour occupation of the public park at High Street and Brickdam. The group of citizens said their work would intensify in several ways.
The end of the 24-hour occupation after two and a half months came following last week’s attempt by Housing and Water Ministry workers to evict the movement from the square. Placards, banners and posters which were torn down by the ministry workers were reclaimed within minutes by members of the group and replaced at the site. Prior to this the Ministry had issued a 72-hour ultimatum to the group to move.
