The Greensboro, N.C., version of the Wall Street protest movement, which attracted 600 demonstrators on Sunday, will get a chance to showcase its strength in front of President Obama on Monday.
According to a report in the News & Record of Greensboro, about 200 protesters agreed unanimously to intensify the group’s efforts and consider picketing The Proximity Hotel there, where the president is expected to stay on Monday night.
In addition, the group requested a meeting with the president so the protesters could share their “individual grievances.”
“We wished to invite you to visit with our assembly and hear why the people gathered here are upset with our government,” a letter from the protesters read in part.
This could be interesting to see since the “overwhelming majority” of OWS voted for Obama. Thus far they haven’t said much about Obama, good or bad.
Depending on who you believe the OWS protestors could be anywhere from warm and friendly to outright hostile towards Obama. Assuming, of course, they are allowed within a mile of Teh Precious since Obama has continued the Bush II policy of creating “free speech zones” that are out of sight and out of mind.
