Occupy Little Rock has sent out more information about its state convention Friday through Sunday, Jan. 13-15 in Little Rock. Plenty of details here. Not that it will affect any preconceived notion, but spokesman Adam Lansky speaks for the occupiers:

What OLR has to say to critics everywhere:
We are PRO-CAPITALIST
We are PRO-CONSTITUTION
We are NOT anarchists
About 90% of us HAVE JOBS & those that do not form the heart of the movement
We are NOT drug abusing, dirty, or looking for hand-outs
We ARE FIGHTING to preserve the BILL OF RIGHTS
We ARE FIGHTING to EDUCATE the public on important issues
We ARE FIGHTING to protect LAKE MAUMELLE from contamination by the DELTIC
TIMBER CORP.
We ARE FIGHTING for TRUE REPRESENTATION by our government at the state &
federal level
We ARE FIGHTING for YOU

Fight on, brother.
