§occupy Fresno update
by Dallas B
A Fresno County Security Gaurd came in all macho and said the Fresno Occupy site had to pack up and leave within 5 minutes. We asked to speak with an actual cop. about 10 minutes later 2 sherrifs showed up. After speaking with them for a few minutes and showing them that we are not trashing the area and that we are a part of the occupy movement the sherrifs said that we could stay.

Last night the security and sheriffs actually let us sleep! it was great. About 20 people slept in the park last night with over 60 showing up to the GA. Things are getting organized and it's turning into a really amazing thing. Come by and check it out if you're in the area. Been getting lots of donations but more are always needed, food is the main thing.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
