On December 22, my news supervisor at Talk 1300 gave me an interesting assignment: To go to Academy Park and report live from the site of the impending Occupy Albany eviction.
This post will serve as a placeholder for on-going updates on this story.
I have plenty of photos and video that will be added to this post over the weekend. Stay tuned!
When I walked up to the site of the Occupy Albany encampment, I quickly noticed that many of the protesters had begun moving their belongings to the sidewalk across the street from Academy Park. After a few moments, many of them began setting up their signs and sitting in chairs, seemingly wishing to continue their message from the public portion of the street.
