Residents supporting the Occupy Ithaca movement held a general assembly today in DeWitt Park. Topics discussed at the meeting ranged from announcing upcoming community events the Occupy group plans to support, such as the May Day celebration, to discussing current events and bringing new motions to the floor.
The Ithaca College General Assembly, a function of the Occupy Ithaca College movement, held their first meeting on Tuesday to discuss how students on campus could stand in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City.
On Thursday, Ithaca College joined an Occupy Wall Street movement with over 92 other colleges. Close to 200 students, as well as some faculty members, participated in a walkout and rally, one of the most well-attended student protests in the college’s history.
