Occupy Philly: We're Alive and Well, Still Meeting

They're still here.

Occupy Philadelphia protesters say their movement isn't over despite their eviction from the City Hall plaza where they had been encamped since early October.

Gwen Snyder, one of the group's leaders, says they plan to march to Independence Hall on Saturday. Some will also lobby for reform in Washington, D.C., next week. They have not decided whether to apply for another permit in Philadelphia.

Protesters say their effort to combat corporate greed did not end with this week's eviction.

They also object to the city's claims the eviction and subsequent arrests were done as peacefully and orderly as possible. One protester who spoke Friday says she is being treated for a foot injury after being stepped on by police horse.

Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
