Occupy Tucson began on Oct. 15 at Armory Park— after a shift from Pancho Villa Park to accommodate Tucson Meet Yourself. Now the demonstration is taking place at 3 locations downtown— Armory Park, Pancho Villa, and the main library.
Tucson Police continue to give campers curfew citations nightly at all three locations– despite the restraining order issued by a federal judge in Tennessee who has prevented the state of Tennessee from issuing curfew citations against Occupy Nashville protesters on grounds that the tickets violated their first amendment rights to freedom of speech.
