After nine months protesting economic injustice in Wilmington’s Spencer Plaza, activists with the Occupy Delaware movement have folded up their tents.
The last protesters vacated the plaza Sunday afternoon.
Under a settlement with the city, they had agreed to leave by Sept. 10, a week before the city starts a $1.2 million renovation of the plaza.
Protester Jennifer Wallace says nine months was a fitting amount of time to maintain the tent city. She says the group plans to continue its creative protests.
About 50 people attended the dismantling of the camp on Sunday.
