Things are going too well with Occupy Richmond.
In Richmond, there exists a “fun police” that cracks down on anything cool that happens in the city. I have a fear that there will be a crackdown much sooner than any of us expect.
That’s why the creation of the Richmond Occupier is so important. It will keep the spirit of the movement alive, regardless of how many people are actually on the ground in downtown Richmond.
The Richmond Occupier will be a venue for the spirit of the movement to find a voice. It will be general interest enough that not just people who consider themselves members of the Occupy movement will want to read it.
At least, that’s my vision. It will be interesting to see what happens as things go forward.
