The Huffington Post has launched a series about Occupations that are “under-publicized” and has started with a video from Gainesville, Florida. It demonstrates how the Occupy movement really resonates with “average folks” (whatever that means) and how it is really taking root in places like Gainesville. The city does have a major university and a history of activism, so perhaps seeing an Occupy movement taking shape there shouldn’t be too surprising. Hopefully the Huffington Post reporters visit Occupy sites like Roanoke, Virginia next.
The video can be see on the Huffington Post’s website here
