Occupy Wilmington takes message on the road
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Occupy Wilmington was back at it again this afternoon, sharing the group’s message with drivers at one of the city’s busiest intersections.
Protestors took their movement to the corner of S. College Road and Oleander Drive this afternoon. The Wilmington protesters waved signs, played the drums and even used a loud speaker as part of their demonstration.
The movement is part of the wider national group that says it represents the 99 percent of people suffering in the economy. Protestors had specific reasons for being there.
“I’d like them to pass some legislation that would help not only people get jobs, but that would help us to save our homes,” protestor Kris Gupton said.
Another protestors, Brian Cox, said, “I would like to see a more equitable distribution of the wealth in this country, but more than that I’d like to see a better future for my daughter.”
Protestors say they can achieve their goals by continuing these demonstrations, sharing their message on Facebook and by letting congress know what they want.
Members of Occupy Wilmington say they will hold another protest October 29 at Riverfront Park.
