Occupy Dallas calls for holiday season support of small businesses
Occupy Dallas demonstrators march to promote small businesses over nationally owned chain stores for holiday shopping, after being evicted from City Hall park days earlier. Dallas, United States. 26th November 2011
Occupy Dallas demonstrators marched in downtown Dallas, promoting small businesses over nationally owned chain stores for holiday shopping.
Occupy Dallas regroups, after being forced from City Hall park days earlier, and stages a march and demonstration in downtown Dallas. Focusing on corporate greed and corruption and crooked politicians, the small group chose to promote independently owned small businesses as an alternative to corporate owned national and international businesses. Demonstrators sang Christmas carols as they marched, accompanied by a trumpet player, and ended the short march at Pegasus Plaza where they plan on maintaining a constant presence, although they are prohibited from setting up tents or overnight sleeping. Since being forced out of City hall park the group has split into two groups, Occupy Dallas and Occupy Now, and efforts are underway to find a common ground to regroup as one again. The two groups met at Pioneer Plaza and exchanged greetings before going their separate ways. Occupy Now holds daily general meetings at Main street park, several blocks east of Pegasus Plaza.
