U.S. National Park Service police clear protesters to erect barricades as they empty the Occupy DC encampment in McPherson Square in Washington, February 4, 2012. Police officers wearing helmets and carrying shields arrived at the site where protesters with the " Occupy" movement have been staging a demonstration since October, but it was not immediately clear whether they would evict the protesters.
