COLUMBIA — An Occupy COMO participant has drafted what is essentially a manifesto for the group as its 23rd day of protesting outside the Daniel Boone City Building came to a close.
The manifesto will be presented Tuesday at 8 p.m. during Occupy COMO's regularly scheduled general assembly meeting. The meetings take place outside of the Boone Building. Anyone who decides to attend the meeting may vote on whether the group will adopt this proposed manifesto.
Protester Nicholas Berry said the proposal has three main points:
"1. We are here because our First Amendment rights allow us to peacefully assemble and grant us the freedom of speech.
2. We are the 99 percent that are tired of having our decisions made by the wealthiest 1 percent.
3. We stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street."
Discussion will take place before the vote. The group has no leader.
