MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Protesters who have occupied a government plaza in Minneapolis for nearly a month in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement will soon face new restrictions.

Hennepin County officials said Wednesday they will begin winterizing the plaza between the county building and Minneapolis City Hall this Friday. They say protesters will have to consolidate their possessions and can’t leave them unattended anymore or they’ll be taken.

The number of portable toilets is being cut from seven to three, and starting Friday no more signs will be allowed.

County officials also said for the first time that they won’t allow overnight sleeping once significant snow falls or the temperature falls below 25 degrees.
