Due to existing concerns with the location and conditions at the City approved Lexington Avenue camp, Occupy Asheville returned their City permit for the camp space during Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Later that night, eight members of Occupy Asheville peacefully defied the Pack Square curfew and were arrested by a large force of Asheville Police. Occupy Asheville worked exhaustively to make the best of a difficult situation, but is now moving forward with renewed effort to express the needs and frustrations of the 99 percent.
Still dedicated and determined after two weeks, more than 100 Occupy Asheville demonstrators sat huddled in Pritchard Park for a "General Assembly" before picketing in front of the Vance Monument at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15. Once at the Vance Monument, protestors held their signs high and chanted in unison about social injustice, advocating for change while others sat down and mediated around their fellow sign-holding demonstrators.
