Occupy Tampa is now officially an occupation!

As of 6:30AM, October 10th, 2011, Tampa has been Occupied for a full 24 hours!
At around 8:10PM last night, October 9th, 2011, the occupiers were asked to leave Lykes Gaslight Park by the TPD. They complied with the order and moved to Curtis Hixon park where they were told by TPD that they can sleep on the sidewalks as long as they don’t obstruct traffic. They are holding a General Assembly at 11AM today to discuss moving the occupation there. All are welcome. None will be turned away unheard. Non-violence is paramount.

For the time being, a sentry has been posted at Gaslight Park to inform newcomers of the changes and let them know what is going on. We hope to have more info soon. Until then, please review the NEEDS tab above (on the website here: http://www.occupytampa.org) to see if you can help the occupiers in any way. They will be in Curtis Hixon park until further notice. I’ll keep you all updated as I hear from the ground crew facilitators.
All night, all day, Occupy Tampa Bay!
