Protesters, for the most part, did not interfere early on during Saturday´s raid, as officers and maintenance workers combed through abandoned tents. Protesters argued that even the tents that appeared to be empty were necessary to protect visitors from the elements.
Protester Robert Dilley said the police action at McPherson Square was mostly peaceful but complained that police “lied to us.”
“They are destroying Occupy D.C.,” he said.
