Occupy Philly votes tonight on whether to relocate

    Dilworth Plaza construction is imminent, and the city wants Occupy Philly to move. So do some of the occupiers, who are hoping the General Assembly votes tonight to relocate the camp to nearby Thomas Paine Plaza.

    On its blog, the Reasonable Solution committee has “two friendly amendments” to a proposal by the Radical Caucus.
    Here’s a preview of what’s to be discussed at General Assembly:

    The Radical Caucus plans to stay at Dilworth and expand to Thomas Paine Plaza, then issue a list of demands. The Reasonable Solution wants to issue one demand and relocate entirely if it’s met.

    Lizz Fiedler will have more details for us on what to expect at tonight’s vote.
