Occupy Alumni: Hammock Students Protest Greed

Lee University students "occupy" Alumni Park.

The Occupy Wall Street grassroots movement has found a new home: Alumni Park. For the last three weeks, students have been setting up a shanty-town of ENO hammocks and blankets in the park as they protest the excesses of capitalism.

Dressed in khaki shorts, tye-dye shirts, and $90 Chaco sandals, these protesters are spearheaded by Daniel Brighton, a Lee Alum and Starbucks barista.

“You know, I just feel like. I mean, people are good, you know. And we need to love each other,” Brighton stated, as scents of the unshowered protesters wafted through the air.
