Occupy Brisbane moved on again

POLICE have begun negotiations with Occupy Brisbane to leave Queens park after a request from The Department of Public Works (DPW).

The DPW requested police assistance to move protestors from the square in George Street on Wednesday afternoon.

Occupy Brisbane protestors were told that they were required to leave the park on Thursday morning.

Shortly thereafter, police negotiators started talking with the protestors and requesting they obey the lawful direction to leave the area.

Officers from Brisbane Central District and the Public Safety Response Team are on scene to ensure Occupy Brisbane move safely and peacefully.

There may be some traffic disruption during this process, and commuters may wish to seek an alternate route to avoid the immediate vicinity.
