Yesterday, the Nation profiled the Occupy movement that has taken shape in Florida, as a commenter on one of our previous blog posts pointed out. The story focuses on many of the issues and concerns raised during the recent People's Convention of Florida in Orlando, including voting issues, cuts to social services and the desire of many in the Occupy movement to the next level so it can affect state (and perhaps, eventually, national) politics.
