First eviction notices go up at Occupy Toronto

Following a court decision on Monday, Nov. 21, 2011, police began securing eviction notices at the Occupy Toronto campsite in St. James Park. The notices were written on the letterhead of the church which owns the property.

The protesters have remained on the site for five weeks. Some packed to leave and comply with the order, while others have attempted to make barricades more secure.
