Occupy Charlotte: In Their Own Words: 'Something needs to be done'

As promised in an earlier post, CL will be bringing you over the next couple of weeks voices from the occupation of Charlotte — individual participants, in their own words, talking about why they joined the local Occupy movement.

Meet David Taylor. He stopped by Occupy Charlotte on Sunday, Oct. 9, with questions. He ended up staying awhile, chatting with several of the occupiers and then attending one of the group's twice-daily Occupying Assemblies. When he realized they were still working out their waste management plan, he offered to haul off their trash from the night before.

"Something needs to be done," he said, "and I think that's what these people are here for — that's why I'm here."

Listen to David, in his own words:
