Occupy Baltimore protestors have filed a permit to remain at an Inner Harbor park through the spring.

Occupy Baltimore protestors are hoping to remain at an Inner Harbor park through the spring. The demonstrators asked the department of recreation and parks and the mayor's office for permission to stay at McKeldin Square through April. Occupy Baltimore protestors are requesting permission for dozens of tents to remain in the park.

A spokesman for the mayor's office says while the mayor supports the protestors' first amendment rights, camping in the park is prohibited.

The mayor's office wouldn't comment on whether the protestors would be removed, saying only they will "deal with any and all issues related to that at a time of our choosing."

Parks officials will decide whether to grant protestors the permit.
