Occupying the occupiers

Upon what basis can an Occupy protest ask someone to leave?

… because “This is private property” or any other version of “You have no right to be here” are open to some fairly obvious ripostes.

“We were here first” – “Er, not quite first. The actual owners of the space were there before you.”
“We are the 99%” – “We’re poorer than you, you middle class ****-ers”
“We represent the 99%” – “Who voted for you, then?”
“We are the official accredited Occupiers” – “We refuse to be defined by your oppressive structures, and hereby declare ourselves to be Occupying this Occupation!”
