Occupy Wall Street comes to Texas

The fervor drawn from the Occupy Wall Street protests, which began about two weeks ago in New York City, has elicited plans for spin-off protests in Texas and other states.

On Oct. 6, activists in major Texas cities plan to conduct nonviolent protests against economic injustice, corporate corruption and the major financial institutions they see as the cause of the current economic failure.

A centralized site called “Occupy Together” features links to local events in various regions around the country as well as international activity. The Occupy Texas site includes protest information for San Antonio, El Paso, Dallas, Austin and Houston.

Leaders say the demonstrations will be peaceful, apolitical and non-ideological. Civil disobedience training is in the works for Dallas-based activists and Houston rallyers are hosting a meet and greet to gauge protest attendance.

Dallas activists will gather at Pike Park and march to the Federal Reserve Bank while Houston protestors plan to walk from Market Square Park to the JP Morgan Chase Tower.

Nearly 900 people have RSVP’d at an Occupy Austin Facebook group. That group hasn’t picked a starting location — the Texas State Capitol is leading in an online poll, though a message on Occupy Texas says that Austin City Hall “is our focal point.”

More than 80 protestors among hundreds have been arrested since the New York City campaign launched on Sept. 17. Some activists say police have used unnecessary force on the crowds, including the use of pepper-spray, and dragging protestors face-down on the ground as shown in video posted to YouTube:
