Occupy Movement To Protest Conventions
The Occupy Wall Street movement — a bust after police cleared protesters out of Zuccotti Park in November — is heading south.
Busloads of the raucous squatters are expected to head to Tampa and Charlotte for the Republican and Democratic conventions, where they will be met by thousands of cops.
The March on Wall Street South is scheduled for Sept. 2 in Charlotte, the day before the Democrats begin their convention.
It’s estimated to draw 5,000 protesters, who will focus on military spending.
“People are surprised Occupy Wall Street is challenging the Democrats and Obama,” said John Penley, one of the original Zuccotti Park protesters.
