Occupy Orlando

On Saturday, November 12th at 11:00am, Occupy Orlando joined the 12th annual Veterans Day Parade in Downtown Orlando to show support for the city’s veterans.

On Sunday the group released the following report: Occupy Orlando protesters helped a person involved in an altercation that occurred at a site near Senator Beth Johnson Park. The altercation involved individuals who are not part of the Occupy Orlando movement, however Occupy protesters who witnessed the incident stepped in to help the injured receive medical attention, alert authorities, and provide eyewitness statements. Contrary to initial reports, the injury was a defensive wound sustained by an individual attempting to remove a knife from an assailant. Occupy Orlando remains dedicated to preserving a peaceful, nonviolent movement dedicated to helping the 99%.
