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.
