    Occupy Phoenix-Day 2-I just don't get it!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter APizm submitted these "Occupy" photos from Phoenix, Arizona. He says that with all the confusion in government, the 99% need a voice and an outlet for this frustration.
    - Echerneff, CNN iReport producer

    Hundred and hundreds are continuing to show up to Cesar Chavez Plaza in downtown Phoenix to continue the protesting for the Occupy movement. Just like the march yesterday it is great to see such a diverse crowd.

     

    But why do people insist in bringing ALL their issues to the Occupy protest? ie SB 1070, Legalize Marijuana, Gay Rights etc etc ETC. I just don't get it. I felt as both a photographer and protester that its to much. The Occupy message of ending corporate greed is getting lost in the mix. I understand those other issues are important but don't use Occupy Phoenix as your platform. Its just bad timing.

     

    The protest will contuine into the night so please head downtown if you are interested.

     

    Keep it peaceful, Keep it productive!
