EL PASO - The local group, "Occupy El Paso" has organized its second rally in Downtown El Paso.

The group will hold a press conference and rally on Saturday, October 15 at 8:00 a.m. at the Civic Center.  The group organized last Friday, October 7, to discuss the details for this weekend's rally. 

The group has obtained a permit for their rally, and will also hand out flyers at Saturday's "Chalk the Block" event downtown.  "Occupy El Paso" cannot hold their rally at San jacinto Plaza on Saturday.  However, the permit allows the gorup to occupy San Jacinto Plaza starting at noon on Monday. 

The group also said they have permission to camp overnight, and to be present during the day for a total of 24 days.

Let's boycott corporations who give us jobs to help us feed our families, buy our homes, and put gasoline in our vehicles!! How stupid is that? These people have too much time on their hands. Get off your duffs and get a job!

Since I've got bills and obligations, I don't think I'll join your "occupy" rally. Since my car needs gas and I need food and eccentials, I don't think I'll boycott anyone. My elderly parents need their medicine's, so I won't be boycotting those corporations either. My bother just started his construction company and is doing very well, I hope no one boycotts him because he is a "corporation". By the way he has hired 78 employee's right now. Boycott the bottled water, its a corporation.

could you please tell us what they are protesting???????uuuuggghhhh!!!
