— Occupy Raleigh protesters packed up their encampment near Edenton Street Sunday to spend more time tackling economic equality issues, according to the group's Facebook page.

The group has rented a plot of land at Edenton and West streets in Raleigh since late November. Protests modeled after the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City began in Raleigh in October.

Occupy Raleigh said it has spent too much time maintaining camp and not enough time fighting economic injustice.

Though they'll no longer be occupying the camp, the group plans to remain active.
