Occupy Worcester, Lake Park, day one


Today is the first day of Occupy Worcester’s actual physical occupation, relocated to “Camp Quinsigamond” in Lake Park last night after a brief moment on the Common.

Worcester Police Department press release: Protestors Stay the Night at Lake Park

When I stopped by today at lunch, 15 people were at the camp. It’s a beautiful site on Lake Quinsigamond, with all the campground amenities.

I can’t confirm this on the website, but I believe the next general assembly is Monday, 6pm, on the Common.

I believe that the land currently being occupied is state land. I also believe that the city is getting their act together today occupy-wise and considering whether there might be better sites. Lots of rumors at the moment.

To visit the camp via public transit, take the #16 bus to Lake Park and walk towards the lake, looking for tents.

One thought on “Occupy Worcester, Lake Park, day one”

  1. So you all know, there is a shift change at the hospital around 4:30 pm, and rush traffic will continue at the corner of Lake Ave and Rt 9 until about 6:30-ish. That might be a good time to have a contingent out with signs on the corners/medians there.
