What is keeping the rest of the people away from the Occupy protests? There should be thousands, not just a hundred. When they see arrests for sleeping in tents, they see a blur between right to assemble and trespassing. They are alienated. When they see arrests for holding a sign they identify because it is so clearly a violation of our most basic feedoms. The few who remain in tents are stunting Occupy's growth. We can't accomplish our goal of political and economic reform unless we attract huge numbers. Are the tents more important than the change we want to see?
