Occupy Wall Street, Atlanta-style

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 9:50 AM

Georgians looking to show solidarity with protesters on Wall Street are planning to assemble tonight at Brownwood Park in East Atlanta:

Here's the Facebook group, which includes a link to the event page. We've sent a message to the person who maintains the OWSAtlanta Twitter account and will update if we hear back.

UPDATE, 1:25 p.m. One of the "general assembly" organizers writes to CL:

We the Atlanta community, the 99%, are currently organizing in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street to take action against the greed and corruption of the 1%. We have adopted the General Assembly model making each decision everyone’s decision to remain unified. Anyone coming to #occupyAtlanta #GeneralAssemblyATL meeting Please read these guidelines on group dynamics in people’s assemblies:
Stay updated on twitter and http://occupyAtlanta.org

UPDATE, 2:44 p.m. I've updated this post to clarify that tonight is apparently only a "general assembly," not a rally. View the link in the organizer's comment above for general assembly guidelines.
