Occupy Chicago, the solidarity protest to the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City, have now entered their seventh day today. The number of protestors has grown to over 60 people at this point and organizers also report relations with Chicago Police have remained civil.

If Twitter chatter -- we're following updates from the #occupychicago and #occupychi Twitter hashtags -- is to be believed, that relationship may be taking a turn away from the cops serving protestors coffee and doughnuts as we post this. The news feeds for the hashtags are abuzz with vague reports of a possible raid set to happen and calls for people to come to the Federal Reserve Bank building with cameras to record what might happen. Occupy Chicago also said they're in the process of setting up a live feed from the Federal Reserve.

If a raid and arrests are in motion, we'll let you know. Until we have concrete proof, it's speculation.

Update: Occupy Chicago has now set up a live feed from the Federal Reserve Building. Our own Steven Pate also checked in with what he calls a "sleepy" scene from the protests.
