I just came from the Occupy Bloomington event over at People's Park. The turnout was impressive - over 200 people from all walks of life. After some speeches (there was no set program of speakers) the bulk of the crowd marched down Kirkwood to the Chase Bank branch at Kirkwood and College. When they returned to the park they were chanting "This is what Democracy looks like."
Many of them are planning to stay at the Park over night. Hopefully, the Bloomington Police will understand that these people are not homeless people, but people with a purpose, and that they will leave the people alone.
I don't know how long this action is going to last. Hopefully, for quite some time. I intend on going down there every day to spend some time with them and support them. I encourage you and all other good progressives to do so as well.
