Yesterday we headed downtown to visit the Occupy Nova Scotia camp located at the Grande Parade. I was surprised to see how it’s grown from last Wednesday when I was last there. I’d say at least ten more tents were set up and the surprise was that this followed the 100mm of rain we had on Thursday. There’s still information sessions going on as well as music, food, and a medical aid tent. I didn’t see any police this time either.
I don’t know how long the Occupy movement is going to last with winter on the way. I do respect their commitment to justice and social change.
