    Two Occupy DC sites could soon become one.

    According to The Washington Post, protesters at Freedom Plaza are considering joining the demonstration at McPherson Square. The merger could happen in the next week or two.

    A spokesperson with National Mall and Memorial Parks told the Post that a permit for Occupy DC at Freedom Plaza expires April 29. Other groups have reserved the space for spring and summer events.

    Protesters said they might leave an information tent at Freedom Plaza.
