Nice to find ya'll here. I live in Central Florida and if anyone's coming down to protest at Tampa Bay Times Forum starting August 27th (or before!) here's a fun map of downtown that I'm sure the tourist-GOP delegates will also have in their grubby palms to get them over to Historic Ybor City after their daily b.s. fests inside the arena. The beauty of Downtown Tampa is that a popular little cute light rail trolley runs straight from right outside the hotels and arena to Ybor's bar, nightclub, and restaurant zone (which, incidentally, is in a largely African-American and heavily Democratic blue collar neighborhood rather like New Orleans). And believe me there's no place else that frisky partiers will head toward. The WASP shelters of St. Petersburg and Clearwater are way too far away. Delegates will want to be on that "TECO Train" toward Ybor City, that's where the action is...unless TECO (Tampa Electric Co.) closes it down. Oh, and the Greyhound and Amtrak stations are both within reasonable walking distance of the arena. Insofar as where Occupiers could stay overnight...well, I would think in terms of cheap blue collar trucker-type motels east of downtown along U.S. Route 41, Route 301, or maybe at labor union-friendly churches and private homes in the Seminole Heights and Sulpher Springs neighborhoods. Tampa has had a long activist history and the fime folks over at WMNF-Community Sponsored Radio 85.5 FM can help you more. I don't live there anymore, I live in Ocoee, FL. Here's the downtown transit and landmark map:

map marking the location of Occupy Wall Street

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is a protest movement that began September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City's Wall Street financial district. The protests are against social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption and the undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector.

General Assembly: 

The NYC General Assembly is composed of dozens of groups working together to organize and set the vision for the #occupywallstreet movement.

New York City General Assemblies are an open, participatory and horizontally organized process through which we are building the capacity to constitute ourselves in public as autonomous collective forces within and against the constant crises of our times.

Please read the Principles of Solidarity working draft.
