#OccupySLC continues its camp-out in Pioneer Park in solidarity with #OccupyWallStreet and the movement that, as of now, has spread to at least 25 cities in America.
Each day has a march at noon and one at 6 PM, and a general assembly to discuss movement issues, goals, etc.
Some scenes and notes from Day Five:
Decision are made by loose group consensus, and topics of discussion are diverse. It still is - and always will be - a "weakness" of the left that we are great yakkers. The process is important, though, and part of a grass-roots, people's movement.
The "free school" has books available, and open time slots for people to expound on topics ranging from the history of the Fed to civil disobedience to whatever the LaRouchies devoted their five minutes to. If it seems sparsely populated, it's because this was taken while everyone was away at the march. The People's Library is taking donations if you have books that you think people might get something out of.
The kitchen area, medical tent, and HQ station were impressive operations for having no real resources beyond what people brought as donations and what they could MacGuyver together from available components. The cops toured all of the aforementioned sites and pronounced them "very decent."
The City Weekly has amazingly good ongoing coverage. The Twitter feed is here, and #OccupySLC's Twitter account is here. Stay tuned for updates!
