Occupy Tacoma

The small park next to the Washington State History Museum is now informally known as Occupation Park. Dear daughter and I walked through it this evening, taking some photos and visiting. The folks there were articulate and warm (their personality, not their bodies which are going to be cold camping this late in the year!). Perhaps my favorite moment is when I realized they had created a small lending library!

Their website says the following:

We Are the 99%

In solidarity with #OccupyWallStreet and countless other @Occupy movements across the world, Occupy Tacoma is part of a peaceful, nonviolent movement fighting corporate abuse of American democracy. We are gathered together in solidarity, to exercise our First Amendment freedoms of speech and peaceful assembly. We are the 99%. Please join us.
