Dignitary’s visit temporarily ends protest


About 40 Occupy protesters complied with a State Police request Monday to clear an area near the State House before a scheduled visit Tuesday by the Brazilian president, an official said. David Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said the US Secret Service requested that demonstrators move in anticipation of President Dilma Rousseff’s visit. Procopio said Monday night that protesters had cleared the area without incident. Demonstrators will be able to return to the area Tuesday after Rousseff’s visit, Procopio said.
