ARCATA CITY HALL – The occupation of City Council Chamber that participants said would last until the City of Arcata re-hired investigator Tom Parker ended around midnight last night. The protest was organized by activists demanding resolution to the unsolved killing of HSU student David Josiah Lawson.

Thursday morning, city staff was holding a routine meeting in the chamber as City Hall bathrooms received a thorough cleansing.

The City Council meeting eclipsed by the protest has been rescheduled to 6 p.m. in Council Chamber.
