Occupy Worcester to occupy the Common tonight

posted by Mike on November 5th, 2011

At today’s Occupy Worcester general assembly, it was decided that people would attempt to set up an encampment on Worcester Common tonight at 8pm.

Organizers have been warned that people camping on the Common will be arrested. Mayor Joe O’Brien, who spoke twice at the general assembly, reiterated the City’s arrest warning.

(I think that if people are arrested, these would be the first arrests for civil disobedience in Worcester since 2008.)

Here’s some video of the general assembly, just for transparency’s sake. (Part 1 currently missing, pending file recovery…)
