Occupy Harvard Protestor Plan To Remove, Tents, Continue Demonstration

BOSTON (CBS) – The protestors at “Occupy Harvard” are planning to take down most of their tents after this weekend.

They’re calling the move  set for Monday a “transition,” and are hoping the it will prompt the university to reopen the gates of Harvard Yard to the public.

The protestors plan to take down 20 tents that form the bulk of the camp, but maintain a continual presence through the winter break  at the dome  erected at its center.

A Harvard spokesman says the school wants to reopen the gates and eliminate I-D checkpoints, but won’t say when that would happen.

    I really wish that the media would cease giving this assemblage any coverage whatsoever. Even the 99% are sick and tired of their moaning & groaning. Someone should tell them that there are rich and poor in every country of the world and that if you want something you have to work for it. Banging on drums and sleeping in tents will get you nowhere. Also, one other suggestion, look in the mirror and ask yourselves one question “who would hire me”?

    The Occupy Movement has a legitimacy borne of a uniquely American, timely, peaceful movement likely not possible any were else. I try to blog a sort of Cliff-Notes for Clergy
    who are confronted with congregations steeped constantly in the bias of mainstream media and its sharp polarities.
