No one person speaks for the people occupying the public square at 6th and Jefferson, but each individual has their reasons for being there. Listen to what they have to say "in their own words".
Day three of Occupy Louisville began with some 30 citizens waking up on The Belvedere after having spent the night outside to keep the "occupation" continuous. There are no actual demands yet, but the leaderless group has managed to develop a process for self-governance, gotten donations of food, water, and other necessities, and set up a website. In other words... they are well on their way to their goal of creating a protest that, like others in New York, Boston, and nearly every large city in the country, will continue on "until their one demand is met"... whatever that one demand ultimately turns out to be.
"These demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy."
If the "occupation" persists on Wall Street, and if it takes hold in Louisville, and Denver, and Houston, and Columbus, and Boston, and Seattle, and Tampa, and Minneapolis... the establishment will eventually be forced to compromise.
