RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Occupy Richmond is ending its protest activities on property next-door to the mayor's house.
Media outlets say Occupy Richmond announced Monday that it will end its encampment on Richmond Free Press Publisher Raymond H. Boone's front lawn. The group says its General Assembly voted Sunday to move on to a new phase of activities.
Boone invited the group to camp in his yard after the city cleared them from a downtown plaza on Oct. 31.
Occupy Richmond says it plans to leave Boone's property Tuesday and concentrate activities toward urban neighborhoods and the downtown. These activities will include community service projects, urban community outreach, educational forums and demonstrations.
