Thousands of people gathered outside the Vancouver Art Gallery to take part in the Occupy Vancouver demonstrations today. A general assembly was conducted from the steps of the building as protestors held signs, played music, and meditated. Many pitched tents on the lawn of the Art Gallery to provide shelter for the coming days. After 2 hours of speakers demonstrators marched past near by banks and shopping areas blocking traffic. With the memory of the Stanely Cup Hockey riots still looming, Vancouver Police were out in large numbers to ensure no acts of vandalism or damage to personal property occurred.
