Subject: Occupy Asheville Information
Wade and Kelly,
You may already have received this information from other sources.
We had a woman named Lisa Bain Landis, otherwise known as "Glo Lady",
stopped by our office this afternoon and she wanted to know who she
should speak with regarding the following things:
They want a "permanent spot in the City to share their story," which is
related to the Occupy Asheville movement. She asked where could they
set up their permanent camp if they cannot use Pack Square Park.
She said that if they can't use Pack Square Park then they are going to
enlist the assistance of the Cherokee Indians and try to take over the
park by use of eminent domain.
Also she said that the Indians are going to be their "protectors" to
ensure that the authorities don't do what happened in New York. The
Indians will stand in a ring around them and make sure that the
protestors are not harmed.
Furthermore she said that they were planning a meeting in Pack Square
Park at 7:00 pm tonight.
I asked who was their contact person, and she said that she hoped that
they might determine a leader tonight as they have no leaders.
