SEATTLE (AP) -- Seattle park rangers are telling Occupy Seattle demonstrators it's time to move their tents from the downtown Westlake Park or face arrest.

KOMO Radio reports police are standing by Wednesday afternoon to deal with demonstrators who refuse to pack up.

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn McGinn says they have a right to protest corporate power but their tents are displacing other people who have a right to use Westlake Park.
