Reports of end of Occupy Charlottesville premature
Occupy Charlottesville is still alive and well and focusing on continuing to build community while highlighting among other issues the great level of income disparity in this country, according to a press release shared today with AugustaFreePress.com.
According to the release, the Nov. 30 action that resulted in several members being arrested for trespassing in a public park was the first direct action of civil disobedience for this group.
Occupy Charlottesville will use the winter to do action planning to bring a continually larger spotlight on what is not working in this country and why it is not working. There are many ideas being discussed.
“Now that the community at large knows that we are here, it is time to reach out to more individuals and groups,” says a participant who wishes to remain anonymous.
