ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – The protesters who make up the St. Louis anti-establishment Occupy STL Movement seem to be reassessing their strategy.

Early Saturday, police arrested 27 protesters for curfew violations and took them to jail for the night.  Then, city workers came on the scene and removed the protesters’ tents and protest signs.

By Saturday afternoon, some of the protesters left jail on bail and the message when they got out was mixed.

A few said they’d continue their occupation.

Others say they’ll protest by day but leave the park by the 10 p.m. curfew time. Mayor Slay’s office says that’s an acceptable option, that it’s the tents and the overnights that violate city law.

Those items seized Saturday weren’t destroyed.  The city has them in storage at a site on North 13th Street and says the owners can reclaim their goods there.
