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.
From last night:
The brief occupation of the Common, the police, and the decision to move to Lake Park
