BOSTON (FOX25 / - It is week two for the protestors on the Greenway in Boston and there is no plan to call it quits.
Even the Mayor hasn't said when he'll clear all the tents out  although he can do it at anytime because the group never got a permit to be there.
"As long as they're law abiding, let's work together" said the Mayor.
Last week, an Occupy Boston representative told FOX 25’s VB that they could stay through the winter .
Protestors have combined several issues together and that's one of the things they're being criticized for. There's a lack of focus in their fight, but a few of the issues that stand out are the role Wall Street and big corporations play in American politics, and the lack of the jobs.
"I believe we all have the right to the American dream....for that to happen" a protester told FOX25.
The group is using solar panels to power certain things, but they're also using power outlets at the park, which is the city's electricity. They are also using other city resources like trash pick up and clean up, and police officers are being paid overtime with your tax dollars.
More people are expected to take part today. Local college students are supposed to march thru downtown at 1:30 p.m. and hundreds of people with The MassUniting Coalition, plan to march from Dewey Sq to the Charlestown Bridge at 3 p.m. this afternoon.
