Protesters with “Occupy Boston” were still occupying Dewey Square on Friday morning, after the mayor’s deadline for them to leave passed to much fanfare as hundreds flooded into the park to show solidarity with the group.
Mayor Thomas Menino had ordered the protesters to leave the park by midnight or face eviction. So, the majority of them packed up their camp equipment and called for people to come join their “dance party” later Thursday night, then they did just that as police looked on.
