Occupy Washington Square General Assembly Takes Place

And perhaps the most exciting sight to see…

The Arch Un-Barricaded!

UpdatedProfessor, author and activist Angela Davis spoke at Occupy Washington Square yesterday Sunday 10/30 in an inspirational and engaging talk with the Arch as a backdrop, stating: “Your movement calls upon the majority to stand up against the minority.
