The Occupy Nola movement left their camp at Duncan Plaza Sunday, but only for a brief moment.

Protesters brought their fight to the home of the city's top man, Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

This comes after the New Orleans Police Department cleared out their camp earlier in the week.

Today, they stood outside of Mayor Landrieu's home with a list of demands.

They want charges of a Delgado College student who was arrested at the camp dropped immediately.

Plus, protesters want their rights to be respected by Chief Ronal Serpas.

But the demands don't end there.

The movement is fighting to end homelessness across the metro area and they want those living at the camp to have a permanent place to call home.

Demands: Free the prisoners, we allz gets a free house, and the police can't tell us what we can't do.

Keep an eye on this guy: Mike Howells.
He's a professional protester. I've seen him at the UNO protests during the SLRC, and on TV news many times when there's some protest involved. He's also involved with the Iron Rail Book store, fought the city of New Orleans to have the Communist Workers Party added to the ballots, etc. Where ever there's a protest to promote socialism, he's there. Google him up and have a look.

every one of these bastards that breaks the law should be arrested and fully prosecuted!!

They have been coddled far far too long.

Lawful, constitutional protest is wonderful, important, and is every citizen’s right.

Much of what these “occupy” scumbags do has gone far beyond legal boundaries.

I’m sure if each protester like Mike Howells will invite a homeless family into THEIR homes to live, that would solve the homeless problem in New Orleans.

The Occupiers want the Police Chief to respect their rights.

The Occupiers want and want. It is four year old language.
I am amazed that this Occupy Whatever is still making news.

I see the video at the site where one of the “homeless” occupiers has an IPad, video recording the interview.
