Occupy Boston occupies, then gets evicted
When the national movement began, it took Boston by storm. Hundreds set up tents in Dewey Square and lived there for 10 weeks. Eventually, Mayor Thomas M. Menino worked with the Boston Police Department to clear the square.
Compared with other gatherings around the country, the end to the Occupy Boston encampment was relatively peaceful.
