Occupy Rochester Continues Action Beyond Park Encampment
Supporters of the Occupy movement in Rochester say they're gearing up for another season of activity even if they're not moving back into Washington Square Park except for periodic daytime rallies and meetings.
Shirley Thompson, an active member of the Occupy Rochester assembly, says there are many issues that still remain as they continue to challenge those at the top of the economic and political pyramid.
Occupy assembly member Andrea Moscowe says the action will continue through working groups and community mobilization even if there's no fulltime presence in any local park.
Thompson's colleague Brian Erway says the movement is becoming active nationally on issues of social and economic justice.
