Mayor Ed Lee took a tour of the Occupy SF encampment in Justin Herman Plaza on Tuesday morning, flanked by San Francisco police.

Lee told The San Francisco Examiner that he will meet with the Occupy SF protesters Wednesday. He said he hopes protesters will agree to move out of the plaza and relocate to a private property.

The City's homeless czar Dariush Kayhan walked the mayor through the camp.
