Occupy Tampa: protesters form community on Ashley Drive

Tyrone of Occupy Tampa

The protesters of Tampa’s own version of the Occupy Wall Street movement have taken the meaning of the word “occupy” to heart, and a small community of sleeping bags has popped up on the edges of Curtis Hixon Park.

The campers rely on their fellow protesters for food and security, and a table piled high with supplies stands about five feet away from the pillars they sleep against. After a police-enforced wake up call at 8 a.m., protesters gather their numbers in preparation for their march to City Hall to occupy the Oct. 20 city council meeting.
