At noon on October 22nd, Occupy Baton Rouge held our first general assembly at State Capitol Park. Everyone was invited to attend and share their opinions, and every voice was heard.

Occupy Baton Rouge is a leaderless, non-violent resistance movement united under a general discontent with our elected officials. We see that money, not voting, shapes public policy, that the extremely rich are bailed out while the lower and middle classes are forced to bear the brunt of a failing economy, and that the needs of society are placed behind the profits of corporations.

We are the 99%. We will make a positive difference!
