Hey, don't knock the square dancing. It was really fun. :)
I was there, and I'm fairly sure it WASN'T metro. They got a uniformed police officer's attention (there was one staffed, directing traffic or something) and he was the one that shooed the van off. Metro was the one that got the van to leave. Pretty sure they wouldn't do that if it was their own staff covertly surveilling the protestors.
Gast, that is the press release. Not my paragraph.
Their press release is as follows:
Occupy Nashville is a group of Tennesseans gathering at Legislative Plaza in Nashville, Tennessee at noon on October 6th to show support for Occupy Wall Street, a rapidly growing movement promoting the separation of corporations from our government.
Occupy Nashville believes that corporate greed has corrupted our government, and 99% of the households in America have been harmed as a result. People have been crippled by job loss, exorbitant student loan debt, predatory home mortgages, and declining or stagnant wages in spite of increased worker productivity. Corporate takeover of government has ruined our standard of living and is threatening our future.
The only solution is to remove their hand from our government.
Tennesseans from all walks of life are coming together to raise awareness of this crisis and its root cause. Occupy Nashville is not about party politics. We are parents, students, teachers, small business owners, workers, and the unemployed. We are the 99%.
Agreed; many Belmont students are in open revolt about this. I, as a Christian Ethics major, am upset about what the Board and Administration's decision regarding this situation says about my degree. The administration's position does NOT reflect the opinions and stances of the faculty, staff, or students. This has been a topic of serious discussion in nearly all of my classes in the past week, and everyone is very upset about it.
this is my favourite thing i've ever read.
