Supporters of 'Occupy' Colorado Springs say tents will go up tonight

Jason Warf who's part of the 'Occupy' Colorado Springs movement says that in the 6x20 area, which shown in photo, the tents, that were used for supporters to camp overnight, were taken down this morning, and they will go back up tonight.

He added that many of the supporters of the movement are willing to go to jail if it comes to that later tonight, as he himself is also prepared.

As for the three tents that the group has currently set up on the southwest corner of Acacia Park, which have food and information, those will not be torn down.

Ward added that the "no camping ordinance" has not effected the groups 24/7 occupation. The occupation will continue to go forward with no anticipated stop day. He also mentioned earlier today a total of eight warning tickets were issued
