Still Occupying Athens, GA
Posted by Usha Rodrigues

So I admit, I was a little skeptical about the staying power of Occupy, Athens, GA.  It hasn't been quite 2 months since I first blogged about our local chapter, but they are still going strong.  I see about 5 tents on my way to work each day.  I spoke with two quite genial occupiers, who said first of all "We're a very diverse group."  Indeed, one was a self-described "capitalist war vet smoking a cigar."  But he thought corporations should "get out of government."  His friend, however, was "against capitalism"--although at first he said he wasn't.  Obviously a lot of camaraderie and tolerance going on.
