McPherson Square in Washington still has some presence from Occupy DC; all is quiet Sunday afternoon

Sunday early afternoon (Feb. 5), all quiet was at McPherson Square with the Occupy DC protest. Police allowed driving down 15th W (and then closed it), and up 15h E, but not I St.  About a third of the tents were still there.  Police did not seem to object to foot traffic or cameras. The statue of Maj. Gen. James G. McPherson had been uncovered.  

There was little traffic in the area, and there actually were free open parking spaces on the streets a block away. Lights were cylcling properly to keep traffic from loitering.  

According to CNN, there were eight arrests on Saturday.
