Around the country some Occupy Wall Street protests have taken a turn for the worst. Hundreds of arrests have taken place and occupiers have been forced out of the parks where they set up camp.
Here in Lansing, it's a different story. Occupiers have been set up at Reutter Park for about a month. Originally they set up camp on one side of the park, but they over recently moved to the other side of the park because they didn't want to kill the grass.
Some say, this is one example of how Lansing occupiers are making sure the movement they've started here stays a peaceful one.
In Denver more than 20 protesters were arrested over the weekend. In Portland, Oregon clean up is underway at an Occupy site after 50 people were arrested, and in Oakland, California police are clearing occupiers out after a rowdy past few days that left one man dead.
But in Lansing, it's been a different scene, with no arrests and no major problems.
"So far so good," said Randy Hannan with Mayor Virg Bernero's office.
"I think that our Occupy protest has been a model for the country, in both the way they've conducted themselves and the relationship we've established with them…very cooperative collaborative relationship," said Hannan, the mayor's executive assistant.
Hannan contributes to open communication among occupiers and the city.
"What's worked for us here locally is that we've made that immediate contact with the group so that there's no surprises…so that they know what our concerns are and we know what theirs are…and so we can work through those things," said Lt. Noel Garcia with the Lansing Police Department.
"We tell police about our marches whenever we go out…we tell police ya know were going to be marching from here to here," said Roman Collins.
It's a different story in Detroit where the city is asking occupiers to leave their camp as their permit expires Monday night. Protestors in Lansing have an open-ended permit as long as all stays calm.
"It's really a day-to-day basis that were keeping an eye on them on how things are going and as long as they continue to respect the property and follow the rules were willing to continue to keep working with them," said Hannan.
Occupiers say on average about 30 people are staying at the park and they don't plan on leaving any time soon.
