VIDEO: Occupy Little Rock planning meeting

Posted By on Fri, Oct 7, 2011 at 11:25 AM

Videographer Gabe Gentry caught some video of the Oct. 4 planning meeting of Occupy Little Rock — our home-grown offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City — as the local movement continues to gel. Earnest young folks and seasoned old-timers coming together in solidarity against the slow slide to Plutocracy? Sounds like a plan to us.

Occupy Little Rock will be holding their next meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, October 10 at Riverfest Amphitheater near the River Market.

  • The Sunday night line: Forecast on the marriage morrow

    May 11, 2014
    The line is open. I have little to add except that, tomorrow, the main focus of news in the developing same-sex marriage story is in Pulaski County, where marriage licenses will be issued until and unless a court stays Judge Chris Piazza's order last week. As I wrote Saturday, after sitting in on a discussion by county clerks, it's doubtful any county in Arkansas will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples except the six that are named defendants in the case before Piazza. But…..a little local wrinkle. ALSO: Great film from Eureka. /more/
