Since then, I’ve been thinking. I had spent the last few weeks covering Occupy Atlantic City. Suddenly, I was smack dab in the middle of Wall Street. And, like most Americans, I sat back and tried to balance the good from both sides. It’s why so many of us have money invested in Wall Street, as we support the messengers of change "occupying" it.
“You can disagree with the way the protests are going about things, but agree that Wall Street is out of control. When the bottom falls out the tip doesn’t realize that they’re screwed too.”
This past weekend saw peaceful demonstrators standing on the corner of Indiana and Pacific avenues forewarned they would be arrested immediately if a tent were erected on the Pinnacle (former Sands) site they are calling the "sandlot."
The occupiers will be allowed to peacefully assemble during the day, they have been told by local authorities. They will not be allowed to camp overnight on city property or privately held lots, such as the former Sands site.
"Please join us — as history will be made in Atlantic City and we want every one of you, your families and your friends, to be a part of it."
The statement, which will be released no later than Thursday, Nov. 17, will state, I am told by the organizers, where and when they intend to Occupy Atlantic City.
It was announced the encampment and occupation of Atlantic City would begin this coming Saturday, Nov. 19, at a location to be announced.
“Atlantic City, Vegas, Reno, Wall Street is the real casino,” shouted protesters, “We are the 99% and so are you.”
