The protesters had said the planned cleanup at 7 a.m. was merely a pretext to evict them.

They've been camped out there for a month in a protest over wealth distribution that has inspired similar demonstrations across the globe.

Supporters streamed into the plaza early Friday before the announcement.

There was a strong police presence, and a showdown between protesters and authorities had been feared.
