Why Not Occupy Fort Worth On Saturday?

Posted November 22, 2011 by Jeff Prince in Blotch

About 100 people showed up last Saturday for the Occupy Fort Worth activities that included a downtown march and concert.

That’s not a bad turnout for a protest in Fort Worth, the sleepy city that yawned its way through the civil rights movement and various other social protests back in the day.

But this is a new day, a new era, and you can be an active part of it if you wish.

Occupy Fort Worth is meeting at 1 p.m. Saturday at Burnett Park, 501 W. 7th St.

A peaceful march begins at 2 p.m. through downtown (brings signs if you like).

Live music with Wayne Floyd starts at 3 p.m., followed by workshop and discussion groups.

Weather is supposed to be nice, it’ll be a pleasant holiday weekend, and the odds are good that you are not part of the 1 percent, so maybe now is the time to check it out.
