occupy st. augustine


Occupiers from Key West to Pensacola and everywhere in between Occupied the Capitol on January 10, 2012. Occupy Florida first marched up Gaines Street chanting and drumming. Chants of “People Over Profits”, “Banks Got Bailed Out, We Got Sold Out”, “Pink Slip, Rick Scott”, and “Whose Capitol? Our Capitol” rang out through the streets and outside the State House in Tallahassee. We went through metal detectors as we entered the Capitol Building. The personnel in charge were efficient and cordial and had no trouble with our entourage, which included many signs, a service dog, and a service bicycle. We toured the rest of the Capitol en masse. We were a presence that could not be ignored.
