Lansing -- A mix of students, faculty, and other associates of MSU marched in the rain and hail from Beaumont Tower to Reutter Park today, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m.
They were marching in solidarity with Occupy Lansing and expressed a message of discontent with both the state of educational funding and what is seen as too much corporate influence on how their schools are run.
We, the General Assembly of Lansing, do hereby declare the occupation of Solidarity Square in Reutter Park. We stand in solidarity with the movement at Wall Street and others around the world. We are here to stay until a more just, equitable system manifests itself for the 99% of Americans who so desperately need it now. We are strong, we are peaceful, we are united. We are Occupy Lansing.
