Scene: Occupation Reboot

Near City Hall, some protesters are trying to bring Occupy Toronto back.

WHERE: The west side of Nathan Phillips Square

WHEN: January 18, 10 p.m.

WHAT: In the aftermath of Tuesday’s budget vote and the simultaneous protest in Nathan Phillips Square, a small group of protesters set up camp in the hopes of restarting Occupy Toronto; about a dozen tents are now up near City Hall. One camper told Torontoist photographer Corbin Smith that this was a “second go of occupy Toronto” with a smaller, core group of protesters taking up residence in the tents. As for any plans or goals, the protester suggested that they’ll “ride this one out” and see where it takes them.
