Occupy Madison forced to relocate encampment


The displacement of Occupy Madison campers from a county park Sunday sparked local philanthropy efforts from members of the community this weekend.

The group, consisting of about 15 to 30 people, was camped out in the park for 120 days, according to Carrie Springer, spokesperson for the Dane County Executive’s Office.

Since leaving its post at the Occupy Madison site on East Washington Avenue, a nomadic group of campers was staying north of the city at Token Creek Park. However, county officials asked them to leave Sunday because county workers need to prepare the area for public camping season, Springer said.
