Occupy Albany

Why are you here at Occupy Albany?

 


Solar panels collecting energy to be used during the night.

The proverbial peace sign.  Occupy Albany is extremely peaceful.  No problems at all.

Artistic endeavor of an occupier - Wall Street bankers behind bars.



Our state capitol, "For Rent"

They make a very good point.  We bailed out banks who have acted like little piggies for so many years, but we are turning our backs on those people who have worked hard.  Not fair.



So many tents, and people are still arriving.  That's the NY Capitol in the background.


The leaves around the tents are actually helping to keep the occupiers warm.  Luckily, we've had the warmest November that I can remember in recent history.




Albany Occupiers speak out.

 

A new arrival - I spoke with him, he was at Occupy Wall Street as well.
