After speaking with the City it has been confirmed that the only conversation between the city and OR took place at 6:48 PM The city called the OR trac phone and asked a representative of OR to go downtown and relay a simple message, “please ask the downtown occupiers to leave the park before park hours are over and before the situation escalates.” This message was delivered around 8:00 PM That was the end of the conversation! Anything else that is being said is nothing but gossip and our permit/relationship with the city was not and IS NOT in jeopardy!
Once again, there were NO THREATS made and our permit was NEVER in jeopardy!
I’ve just received word from the downtown occupiers that they have left the plaza and reached City Hall and are planning to stay the night. As of 12:45 a.m., there is no eviction order for this downtown site. They are asking for warm blankets and hot drinks if possible.

Apparently, RPD has deemed breaking up the occupation a low priority for tonight. Read the story here: http://www.rgj.com/article/20111203/NEWS/111203031/Update-Small-Occupy-Reno-protest-held-downtown?odyssey=mod%7Cnewswell%7Ctext%7CFRONTPAGE%7Cp
Additionally, numbers at the Moana occupation are unusually low tonight, and they could use some extra security for the night shift if you can make it down there anytime before dawn.
While we anxiously await updates on the situation downtown, I’ve added a discussion thread for all of us to talk about our thoughts on the matter available here: http://discussion.occupyreno.org//index.php/topic,149.0.html Please add your input!
