Occupy Fresno Wins Recognition of Constitutional Rights and Dismissal of All Arrests
Occupy Fresno held a press conference on June 8th to discuss the settlement of its suit against Fresno County. According to Occupy Fresno representatives, the settlement is not the victory they were looking for, but it is positive. It upholds the constitutional rights of freedom of assembly and freedom of speech. Fresno County will remove restrictive ordinances limiting the circulation of flyers, carrying of signs, and holding small gatherings in Courthouse Park. Those arrested will not face criminal charges. Fresno County spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to monitor and arrest Occupy Fresno demonstrators. There were 105 arrests.

Beginning on October 9, 2011, several hundred people of all ages, from all walks of life met in Fresno County Courthouse Park to be a part of the Occupy Wall Street movement. June 9th is the eight month anniversary at Fresno County Courthouse Park — the only known Occupy in the movement that has maintained a continuous 24-hour presence in its original location.
