Hundreds 'occupy' Sacramento city hall for more time
Tuesday, October 11, 7:46pm
SACRAMENTO, CA - Hundreds, plus dozens more outside city hall, were at the Sacramento City Council meeting Tuesday evening to gain more time for Occupy Sacramento protests.
The "Occupy" movement started in New York City with "Occupy Wall Street" to protest corporate greed. The movement spread across the country and eventually to Sacramento.
Occupy protestors wanted to convince the body to allow occupation of Cesar Chavez Park 24 hours a day.
The "Occupy Sacramento" movement is its sixth day. Since Thursday 35 protestors have been for unlawful assembly after the park's closing time.
