A general assembly is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the public square at the corner of Liberty and Division streets. The movement is meant to show solidarity for the other Occupy movements going on across the country, including the main Occupy Wall Street event in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, where protesters have been since mid-September.
About 200 people gathered on the Diag on the campus of the University of Michigan on Oct. 6 in the first Occupy Ann Arbor gathering. The gathering was a meeting to organize supporters in Ann Arbor, and the Facebook event for the protest indicated Tuesday’s event is meant to be in a similar vein.
Protesters also are planning to go to Occupy Lansing and Occupy Detroit protests later this week. The protestors in Detroit are planning to sleep at the protest site until mid-December, according to reports.
