LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Mayor Greg Fischer is telling Occupy Louisville protesters to move along.

Mayor Fischer denied the group's request for a permit to remain encamped at Founder's Square. The protesters have been ordered to leave by April 13.

The city says the Occupy camp has been disruptive and made Founder's Square inaccessible to the public.

A spokesperson for the mayor said the park has become a homeless camp.

An attorney for the protesters said it is up to Occupy Louisville to decide whether to press on.
