At 4:30 yesterday afternoon, members of Occupy Providence met at Burnside Park to march up the hill to Brown’s Main Green. Protesters carried signs, played make-shift instruments, and chanted things like “we are the 99%, you are the 99%” and “banks got bailed out, we got sold out.” Passing drivers honked their horns and cheered out their windows in support. With Brown Police standing by, Occupy Providence paraded under Faunce Arch and filed into a packed Salomon DeCiccio Auditorium to attend the Teach-In for Occupy College Hill. Occupy Providence has since released its first mission statement to the public.[nggallery id=68]
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/7
Ratty: Shepherd’s Pie, Grilled Chicken Alfredo Sandwich, Chocolate Chunk and Pretzel Cookies
V-Dub: Ham and Bean Soup, Nacho Bar, Mexicali Macaroni Bake, Raspberry Crumble Bar
Advantage: V-Dub. Hold on to your pants, kids. You have serious bullets to dodge at either eatery, but the nacho bar is the tastiest option to avoid some serious toilet timin'.
