Occupy BloNo (Local Coverage/Resources)

Approximately 200 people participated Wednesday in the Occupy BloNo rally on Illinois State University quad, held in solidarity with the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement. The rally started at 12 noon, involving many different progressive organizations. A General Assembly of Occupy BloNo organized subsequent rallies to take place 11 – 2 every day on the bridge over college Ave.

Below you will find local media coverage of Occupy BloNo and a link to local websites.

  1. I would like to thank you all for distracting my daughter’s high school band while they were going by the judge’s stand at this parade competition with your chants and yelling. You should all be proud of yourselves for disrupting and distracting them at one of the VERY FEW competitions they attend. Congrats. Now you have someone that was neutral on the subject VERY irritated! Think about this the next time you plan to protest at a family-oriented event.

    • The protest was ,in a public space, before you showed up for an event that is hardly all that family oriented. You do not own the world and it need not answer to you, Think about THAT the next time you walk into something unexpected.

  2. From what I know of the march, the purpose wasn’t to disrupt the parade. I’m of the opinion that if chanting was a distraction, though, it was an innocent mistake.
