journal excerpt:

Just finished our march on City Hall and downtown Providence. The People gathered at the Burnside Memorial and together we read the letter of intent to stay and maintain the occupation. The mayor was in attendance and I think he may have wanted to talk but we marched on to and into City Hall to the Mayor’s office to formally present the letter. Upon entering City Hall everyone went silent. Marched up the stairs. Presented the letter. Then burst into chant and began the march out into the city past the banks. We are the 99%! All day, all night, Occupy Burnside! Banks got bailed out, we got sold out! This is what democracy looks like! Several police cars followed the crowd through the streets and stopped traffic for us. We marched to the State Courthouse and then back to Burnside. Now the people are gathered for the drum circle.
