SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police are preparing to arrests protesters who say they will fight an order to vacate two downtown parks.
Police have told them to remove their tents by sundown Saturday. About 150 people have been camping at Pioneer Park for weeks, while about a dozen people began camping in another part of downtown earlier this week.
City officials rescinded permits for the group to stay in the parks overnight on Friday, about 12 hours after a man was found dead of a likely drug overdose in a Pioneer Park tent.
Occupy Salt Lake organizers say many protesters are willing to be arrested to make a point. The group is standing in solidarity with protesters in New York and elsewhere who oppose what they call corporate greed.
