Grand Army Plaza may not be the only Brooklyn locale to get "Occupied."
With protesters against what they call corporate greed run amok planning a return to the borough next Saturday, one local elected official suggested that the rest of Brooklyn also get into the act.
"People are disenfranchised and dissatisfied with their government, and that's what Occupy Wall Street is all about," said Councilwoman Letitia James, D-Brooklyn, at FUREE's 9th Annual Convention on Saturday. "That's why we're also trying to do Occupy Crown Heights, Occupy Bed-Stuy, Occupy Brownsville."
No word yet on possible locations for the protests, which up to this point have been mostly held in public spaces adjacent to commercial districts and not primarily residential areas.
James added that an Occupy Brownsville protest would be particularly welcome in a community still reeling from Friday's rooftop shooting that left 32-year-old Zurana Horton dead as she attempted to shield children from a hail of bullets.
