Following the eviction from their camp at Dewy Square on Saturday, the remaining occupiers regrouped and went to the Boston Police Headquarters to protest during Mayor Menino’s press conference, The Boston Globe reported

The eviction came after Menino set a deadline for protesters to leave the camp by midnight Thursday or face police action.

Menino called on protesters to be the first Occupy protesters to end their occupation and “be gone like a gypsy squad.”

Earlier this week, a Boston judge ruled against the protester occupation camp, calling their occupation “a hostile act”.

Protesters began camping in Dewey Square in the city’s financial district on Sept 30.

The encampment is part of a series of protests nationwide that have been credited with drawing attention to the issues of social and economic inequality.

The movement was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street campaign (OWS), which began in New York’s financial district on September 17 in protest to ‘corporate greed’ and high-level corruption in the country.

The movement spread across the US during the fall, with camps emerging in different US cities, including Philadelphia, Los Angles, and Portland.

Police have cleared out camps in New York and Los Angeles, arresting hundreds of people. The crackdown, however, has fallen short of ending the campaign
