A handful of participants tied to the Occupy Wall Street protest have complied with an order to remove tents from New Jersey's World War II Memorial in Trenton.

But protester Andrew Higgins says they plan to keep their table, chairs and generator.

State Attorney General Paula Dow on Thursday ordered those occupying the memorial can stay as long as they like. But they must remove any signs of permanency by Friday.

Higgins says a state trooper arrived around 2 a.m. and the group removed most of the material. Cushions and other items are bundled for removal.

But Higgins says the group wants to keep its chairs, table and a generator that's helping power a laptop computer.

The protesters have been camping out at the memorial since Oct. 6.
