THE COLLEGE HILL INDEPENDENT


Occupy Providence

by by Alexandra Corrigan

Images from the occupation protest in downtown Providence's Burnside Park. To start the occupation, the hundreds of protesters  marched downtown. The trek, bringing the evening commute to a standstill,  was annotated with brief speeches along the way from members of Jobs with Justice, local teachers and a former state employee. Time will tell how long the camp-out in the park will last, but for now, the police seem to be allowing their presence without a permit.
