Occupy Louisville permit renewed, but not with tents

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It may become a little bit harder for Occupy Louisville protesters to make their presence known.

Protest organizers say their special event permit is being renewed by the city, but that overnight camping and tents are no longer allowed.

Protesters say that means they won't be able to effectively show their protest 24 hours a day.

The current permit allowing tents is set to expire at the end of December.

"It's just making it a little bit harder for us," said Pamela Newman. "We will still organize. We will still be the Occupation. Like other cities, it's not going to stop us. It's just an inconvenience."

Occupy Louisville organizers say they plan to meet with the city again before a final decision is made.
