(Harrisburg, PA) October 16:
Occupy Harrisburg has voted to continue their occupation of the Capitol steps and will meet the PA legislature on Monday morning.
The occupation began at 12:01 am on Saturday, October 15th. In the forty-eight hours since the occupation began, hundreds of supporters have rallied on the Capitol steps and thousands more have expressed their solidarity.
A media representative from Occupy Harrisburg said, “We will be here as long as it takes. Our faces may change, but we will remain."
Occupy Harrisburg stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and the hundreds of other movements taking place in cities across the United States. Those who want to join protesters in standing up for change are urged to come to Harrisburg’s Capitol steps at Third and State streets in the coming days.
Occupy Harrisburg stands in solidarity with all members of the 99 percent against the current system of economic injustice. They encourage all who stand for economic fairness and justice to join them in front of the Capitol at any time.
