Occupy Davis chooses Central Park as its focus

From page A5 | October 14, 2011 |

More than 150 members of the General Assembly of Occupy Davis voted unanimously Wednesday to occupy Central Park.

The occupation, which is set to begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, is another link in the chain of Occupy Wall Street protests that began in New York City.

“There is a gigantic and increasing wealth disparity in this country that is only increasing because of the economic downturn, and (Wall Street) is making the economic downturn worse,” said Bernie Goldsmith, a supporter of the Occupy Davis movement.

Protesters will put up tents during the day in Central Park to symbolize the occupation, and will hold fire watch vigils in shifts throughout the night. However, they will have to take down the tents at night to comply with city ordinances that prohibit camping in the park.

Music, art, teach-ins, nonviolence trainings, craft-ins, knit-ins and marches are planned.

According to Goldsmith, the occupation will last as long as it takes to make a difference.

“An occupation should remain in Central Park indefinitely,” Goldsmith said.

The movement, at the very least, hopes to remind people about their rights as citizens, he said.

“There aren’t really demands; the real reason is to teach people once again to participate actively in their community and in their democracy,” Goldsmith said.
