The Occupy movement may not ever come to Cascade Heights but it has made a statement to one of our most esteemed residents: U.S. Congressman John Lewis.
On Saturday, Occupy Atlanta—which set up camp Friday at Woodruff Park—voted to turn down a request from Lewis to speak to the group. Representatives did invite Lewis to speak later by the Congressman said he had made other plans.
Occupy Atlanta is a branch of Occupy Wall Street, a group that began protesting corporate greed and social and economic disparities in the United States last month.
Here is a YouTube video that captures what happened Saturday.
