Local activist occupies City Council

Posted By on Wed, Nov 30, 2011 at 11:28 AM

Activist Steven Navarro spoke in support of Occupy Charlotte at Monday's Charlotte City Council meeting. I've met him a few times down at Old City Hall, where the Occupiers are camping and where he's camped more than once. He's a Ron Paul supporter, a veteran and an interesting conversationalist full of hard facts and bright ideas.

Monday, Navarro urged Council to "... stay the course on how (they've) treated this spontaneous uprising ... and support them in every way ..."

By the way, anyone can speak at a city council meeting. Click here to find out how to sign up, and here for meeting agendas, minutes and video from past meetings.

You only have three minutes to talk, which is why Navarro is talking fast, so keep that in mind if you decide to speak up, too.
