DENVER (CBS4) – Occupy Denver protesters gathered outside Snooze restaurant downtown Sunday morning. They were protesting the business owner’s support of a proposed camping ban to stop homeless people from sleeping on sidewalks.

“Snooze chooses to put their business in a pawn shop district a block away from the homeless. Why don’t they hire the homeless to wash their dishes,” protester Kelsey Ann Haviland said.

“It is extremely unfortunate that a business like Snooze is being protested,” a patron said. “They were the first to hire homeless individuals and to train them for employment.”

The ordinance goes before Denver City Council members for a second reading next Monday. If passed it could go into effect June 1.
