Occupy Tucson Stays Put ... For Now

Posted By on Mon, Dec 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM

At last week's Occupy Tucson general assembly, ideas were tossed around on what's next and a glimpse on what negotiations are taking place between Occupy representatives and the city of Tucson, and the legal battle over the 600-plus citations the Tucson Police Department has issued to Occupiers since day one on Oct. 15.

This meeting was considered one of the most important to decide on the camp's future, but also how to possibly revive the local movement and whether there is consensus on the creation of a free-speech zone at De Anza Park at Speedway Boulevard and Stone Avenue. No consensus, but no decision either. However, it was obvious most of the people who attended want the camp to remain in downtown Tucson. They also want more people to return to the local movement and help those still there to get busy getting back to the issues.

Take a listen to part of what was discussed:
