Occupy Orlando enters graveyard shift, marching under cover of darkness

by

It's 1 a.m. and the core group of activists rallying under the banner Occupy Orlando, having vacated the park two hours ago at the request of the Orlando Police Department, is still marching. Because it is legal to walk on a sidewalk, hold signs, and even chant at any given hour, activists have decided to maintain the continuity of their occupation through the night by splitting up into three mobile shifts. During the first, activists marched in the direction of Colonial Drive, while some members of the other two shifts retreated to their cars to sleep.

If all goes according to plan, Senator Beth Johnson Park should be re-occupied at 6 a.m. sharp, and the whole cycle will begin anew.
