FAIRBANKS -- Occupy Fairbanks protesters have packed up and left Veterans Memorial Park in downtown Fairbanks after 189 days camping there.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says the Fairbanks North Star Borough issued the group an eviction notice Thursday, ordering them to remove tents and other camping gear by midnight Sunday.
The protesters are a local spin-off of the Occupy Wall Street movement. A core group of about 15 people took turns staying at the park. They began the occupation on Oct. 16.
Protest organizer Forrest Anderson says the group's work is not done. He says the country's workers are still being "sold out by the elite economic class" and the group plans to hold an event for May Day on May 1.
