Dawn Rises on Occupy Richmond

Occupy Richmond's Dawn

Got up this morning and took some water and supplies to the folks at Occupy Richmond.   It wasn’t literally dawn, but it was a figurative dawn.

What a diverse crowd — I met a 74-year-old man and his wife, a twenty-something young organizer,  and bumped into some friends.  Apparently there were several hundred people out there yesterday, and fifty of them spent the night.

 

The park itself is off limits after 8 PM, so the protesters are having to spend the night on the sidewalk and steps.  Future General Assembly meetings may result in moving the occupation, or possible occupation of the park despite the 8 PM closing time.
