Occupy Augusta

I was at Occupy Augusta with Nate and other Michael today when the protesters held a general assembly meeting. It turns out the governor (who lives across the street) has said they must obtain a permit starting Monday. It will not include the right to have more than one tent and overnight camping will not be allowed.

More updates to come as things develop.

I didn’t get down there Saturday, which is when I imagine there was at least a moderately sizable crowd, but there were still a couple of dozen camped protesters Sunday. It’s about what I expect for a small city – the larger protests are going on in Portland where a bomb was recently set off by someone rather unsympathetic to the movement.

Anyway, here are a few pictures:
