The Occupy Fairbanks protesters and borough officials can't agree about the tent.
The protesters put up a tent more than a week ago, but the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/rVXDAS) reported Wednesday that the tent is still up at Veterans Memorial Park despite instructions from borough officials to take it down.
The group says it needs a warming tent to continue to exercise its First Amendment rights of free speech and assembly. But borough officials say the tent violates park rules.
Mayor Luke Hopkins and Borough Attorney Renee Broker are apprehensive about the legal implications of taking a hard line with the protesters. Hopkins says enforcing the regulations could mean stepping "strongly on First Amendment rights."
