Between 40 and 50 Occupy Ann Arbor participants gathered outside at Liberty Plaza in downtown Ann Arbor Thursday to discuss their next moves, according to a Michigan Daily article.
Several of the Ann Arbor protesters —who are rallying against unemployment and perceived economic inequality— are concerned about "the movement’s future strength, the safety of the plaza and the ability of the camp to withstand the harsh Michigan winter," the Daily reported.
A handful of participants have been sleeping out in Liberty Plaza as an act of protest.
When the group met Thursday night, they discussed further ways to organize and gain traction.
Ann Arbor activists held their first gathering on Oct. 6 to discuss a large-scale protest. Approximately 200 people attended that rally.
The Ann Arbor movement is an offshoot of an ongoing Occupy Wall Street protest in New York.
