According to Mayor Mike McGinn's latest blog post, Occupy Seattle protesters may rally at Westlake Park during the daytime and begin setting up tents in the City Hall Plaza in the evening:
We are providing a permit for protest activities at Westlake Park which will allow them to have an organizing tent that can remain overnight. As a condition of the permit, protestors will have to allow for cleaning of the park, protect park property, accommodate the other existing permitted events, and protect access to businesses.
We are making City Hall Plaza available for those that wish to stay overnight, with reasonable restrictions on the tents so as to allow free use of the plaza during the day. Unlike Westlake, City Hall also has restroom facilities available. Both the permit and the ability to set up tents at City Hall Plaza would last for two weeks, at which point we can assess whether the arrangement is meeting everyone’s needs and should be extended.
It's a nice gesture—and a vast improvement from the legal purgatory the protesters are in now—but I'm guessing that the voting masses down there now won't readily embrace the offer. Shuttling a half-mile between the two sites would divide and dilute the protest. They might be more tempted by a deal to stake tents in Westlake Park every evening at 10:00 p.m., provided that they break 'em down by 6:00 a.m. But who knows—this is stacks better than yesterday's arrest-a-thon.
