Occupy Boston : One Week and Going Strong
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
Today marks the one week anniversary of Occupy Boston. Hundreds of protesters have been camping at Dewey Square, across the street from Federeal Reserve Bank in downtown Boston.
Occupy Boston is an offshoot movement of Occupy Wall Street. The group held a public assembly at Boston Common park a few days prior to beginning an occupation at Dewey Square on September 30, 2011, and have vowed to stay indefinitely. Nearly two dozen protesters were arrested last week when they blocked an entrance to the Bank of America building nearby.
