Occupy Columbia is ongoing at the State house. A few hundred people are enjoying the day with a spirited and fun protest. The reaction from people driving by is tremendous!
Permission has been worked out with the State House troopers to camp! People will be staying overnight! Participants cannot bring tents, but they can lay down bedding and sleeping bags. People intend to stay for several days. Donated food is being served by Food Not Bombs and area restaurants.
