The Loveliest Village of the Plain will be occupied Sunday—by 10 people, so far. Twelve more maybe attending and 86 have yet to reply to the invitation at all.
But as of Friday morning, 192 people were bothered enough “about the cozy relationship between Wall Street and the government” to “Like” the Facebook page recently started by the Auburn offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street movement, one of several similar Alabama groups that have sprung up from Birmingham to Mobile since the loosely organized New York protests against perceived economic inequality began making headlines this week.
Occupy Tuscaloosa will hold its first meeting tonight on the University of Alabama Quad… during Bama’s homecoming pep rally and bonfire. So that should be fun.
Occupy Auburn plans to hold its first “General Assembly” Sunday in Ross Square on the Auburn campus from 1-3 p.m. And you have to hand it to them—judging by their Facebook page, they certainly seem more sure of their message than their Sacramento counterparts.

Maybe I missed something but what does AU have do do with the cozy relationship between the White House and Wall Street? It’s the President of the US that gets his campaign money from Wall Street, not the President of AU.
Please don’t give these boneheads any more “pub” than they deserve.
I don’t know about them, but the Auburn Tigers better Occupy The Scoreboard this weekend!
All i know is whatever it is, we better do it better than UAT does it. Even our jobless liberals are superior to theirs!
I take it back, give them all the “pub” they want.
Start with this “episode” this weekend featuring Civil Right hero and Atlanta congressman John Lewis. After watching this, I hope more and more college kids are exposed to this stuff. Surely after a few minutes of this silliness, they will turn and walk away muttering. I was laughing so hard at this video that my wife thought I’d lost my mind.
If the link doesn’t work, good Occupy Atlanta John Lewis and it will come up.
Very creepy stuff.
