BOSTON — A court hearing Thursday may determine the fate of the Occupy Boston encampment, as the city takes steps to evict the protesters who have pitched tents in the city’s financial district since early October.

The Boston news comes on the heels of more than 200 arrests in Los Angeles and 50 in Philadelphia early Wednesday when demonstrators refused to obey police orders to leave their grounds. This leaves the Occupy Boston camp as one of the most prominent in the country.

Boston’s 200-page eviction document, filed in court on Tuesday, said that the protesters sleeping in the dozens of blue and grey tents in Dewey Square, by the Rose Kennedy Greenway park, have no legal rights to continue living on public property, according to the Associated Press.

The Boston protesters have already begun distributing small, red “Occupy Your Right” flyers urging people to gather in front of the courthouse for the hearing on Thursday.
