Occupy Jacksonville Ending 24-7 Occupation | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Occupy Jacksonville today announced it will cease the group's 24-7 occupation of downtown Jacksonville.
The decision was made at the group's general assembly meeting Saturday. The decision was based on the feeling that it "was time for Occupy Jacksonville to evolve to a new stage in our struggle for political, social and economic justice," according to a news release.
Members of Occupy Jacksonville occupied the right of way in front of City Hall for four months, according to the release.
Occupy Jacksonville's General Assembly will continue to meet every Wednesday at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 4 p.m., according to the group's website.
The Occupy Jacksonville press release also thanked the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for their professionalism and the downtown merchants who supported their movement.
