Occupy Tucson

Alex Maldonado, an activist with Veterans for Peace, writing for the CPUSA's newspaper, People's World reported on the Occupy Tucson demonstration,[1]

"The first 20 days of the occupation were peaceful as general assemblies and group meetings were held despite the fact that nightly citations for being in the park after hours were issued. The citations carry a $1,000 fine, 6 months in jail and three years probation. Reports indicate nearly 500 citations have been issued. One occupier received three citations in one night, one at Armory Park, one at Veinte de Agosto Park and one at the Pima County Library Park.
Marches were held, one of which was a five-mile march to and from the University of Arizona to build student outreach. The marches downtown were led to rallies held at the various financial institutions and to City Hall. Occupiers stood before the mayor and City Council, and gave testimonies about why they're part of Occupy Tucson."
