Occupy Sarasota, Global Day of Action

In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Sarasota participated in a Global Day of Action. There were rallies planned in 951 cities, worlwide. In Sarasota, a couple of hundred people showed up with loads of handmade signs. Way to go Sarasota! Everybody I spoke with had a sense of what they wanted to see fixed. Some even had a notion of how to go about it. To show the diversity of priorities brought to this event, I've mashed up a video with a small snippet from the General Assembly and highlights of the signs sported by the participants. Note that Occupy Sarasota is using the people's mic.
