Here is a link to this story: http://www.wmnf.org/news_stories/occupy-tampa-says-it-wont-protest-the-republican-convention-from-inside-the-event-zone

There is quite the difference in opinion within OT on whether this is a good thing or not.

I applaud them for not joining hands with these bigger groups who only help to preserve the status quo in the long run.

But I do wonder if they are missing an opportunity with this.

Thoughts?

All depends on how many boots you have on the ground.

If you protest outside the event zone, you will be arrested... less people for next day protesting as they are taken out of circulation, but possible increased media exposure.

If you protest inside the event zone, good chance you will be passed by as far as media coverage goes, unless you have a major presence there... lots of boots.

If anyone has any ideas for protests, we would love to hear them.
