Add comment on:Occupy Santa Cruz Holds First General Assembly, Decides on Occupation of San Lorenzo Park
Occupy Santa Cruz, a local convergence in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, held it's first General Assembly on October 4th at Laurel Park in Santa Cruz. Hundreds of people gathered in the park, prior to the evening rain, and decided by consensus to launch an occupation at San Lorenzo Park starting Thursday, October 6th at 10am.
On September 17th, over one thousand demonstrators poured into New York City's financial district to confront corporate greed by establishing an ongoing presence, day and night, in lower Manhattan. The idea was to create an American Tahir Square on Wall Street. Police blocked marchers from reaching Wall Street, but hundreds persisted and set up camp in Zuccotti Park, now dubbed Liberty Plaza.
