Occupy Pasadena Rose Parade. – Despite not being able to physically live up to their name any longer, the Occupy movement still manages to do amazing things. Following the Tournament of Roses Parade, Occupy Venice Beach staged an alternative called the Occupy Rose Parade. It featured floats expressing the Occupy Movemen’s egalitarian message. That they found an innovative way to counter the commercialism of the the Rose Bowl and gain a platform for their views is exciting and encouraging.
Occupy Gainesville should consider doing the same thing. An Occopy the (Universiy of Florida) Homecoming Parade would be compelling. Such an event would be a wonderful addition to the Radical Rush held by the Civic Media Center each semester. One can feel the momentum building.
