    The deadline has passed for protesters to moved across the street. (Published Monday, Nov 28, 2011)

    Dozens of tents remain at the Occupy Philadelphia encampment outside City Hall, twelve hours after a city-imposed deadline for the protesters to move to make way for a construction project.

    No arrests were immediately reported Monday. The camp appeared mostly quiet amid a heavy police presence, but around 5 a.m. a handful of people were marching down the street banging drums.

    The scene outside City Hall was quiet most of the day Sunday.
    But the sound of protesters' drumming did bring complaints from several people living in nearby high-rise apartment buildings.

    Occupy Philadelphia has been far different from encampments in other cities where pepper spray, tear gas and police action resulted in the removal of demonstrators since the movement against economic disparity and perceived corporate greed began two months ago.
