Kenzie from Occupy Gainesville

I did another Occupy roadtrip - this time up to Gainesville for Occupy The Courts Day on January 20. A rally was held at Bo Diddley Community Plaza, followed by a march to the Federal Courthouse. Kenzie, a young woman from Occupy Gainesville captured the spirit of the Occupy Movement so very eloquently. She was brimming with quotable quotes. Just a few of many -

... We are all connected and all of our problems are connected. This is the first time that the public has come out and named the source and the root of oppression and injustice - and that's the concentration of power and wealth in this country ... Occupy is about building a sustainable foundation for the future ... Occupy is this fire that has inspired me to jump on these already moving trains ...
