Occupy Boston Protesters Get Evicted, 46 Arrested

JOHANNES EISELE/AFP/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- After months of camping out in Dewey Square, 150 Occupy Wall Street protesters in Boston were evicted Saturday morning.

After police told the remaining protesters that they would be given one chance to vacate the park or be detained, roughly 20 protesters locked arms and sat down, peacefully, ABC's Sean Kelly reported.

The 46 arrested during the less-than hour-long operation were charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct, according to reports. No injuries were reported.

Boston is the last city whose officials have moved to oust Occupy protesters as they demonstrate against corporate wealth, the nation's growing income gap and what they view as assorted other social, economic and political disparities and corruptions.
