SEATTLE (AP) — About 50 demonstrators remain in Seattle’s Westlake Park Thursday, without tents. Some huddled under blue tarps after a morning rain shower.

Demonstrators in the Occupy Seattle group tell KOMO Radio that the arrests of 25 people Wednesday boosted their morale to continue protesting the political power of corporations.

Police moved in after demonstrators refused to remove tents, which are not allowed in parks.

Protesters set up camp in the Seattle park last weekend in support of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration in New York.
