occupy Penticton

October 15 2012 – “OCCUPY” day!  If you’ve been following the news, you’ve of course seen the footage of big demonstrations in large cities, and smaller demonstrations in smaller cities.

What you probably didn’t see was coverage of Occupy demonstrations in smaller cities and towns.  But that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

There was an “Occupy Penticton” event on Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market.  Half a dozen demonstraters walked from their colourfully decorated bus, through the Penticton downtown market, carrying large “occupy” signs.  It was a peaceful march, and quite a number of residents stopped to ask the marchers questions, resulting in some interesting discussion.

Here you go – Occupy Penticton!
