Occupy Wall Street Comes to Cleveland, Occupy Gaskin Becomes Inevitable

You may have read some of the stories about those dirty hippies/people with legitimate grievances about the income gap in this country camped out in Lower Manhattan, being naked, beating bongo drums and getting arrested.

Now, the Plain Dealer reports, the movement has spread to Ohio. While Cleveland isn’t home to the Goldman Sachs world headquarters, it is something of a regional banking capital, so if the protesters are smart, they might seize on that. And while they didn’t appear to disrobed, like their NYC counterparts, they did, according to the Cleveland paper-of-record, have some drums. So that’s a start.

And finally, for our readers currently enrolled in the Quest for Justice (Spoiler alert: You do not find it), the occupation is using Athenian-style general assemblies to make decision, so you might just be able to convince your Poli Sci professor that going to Cleveland would be an educational experience (You can use the video we embedded at the top of the post!).
