Occupy Orlando Saturday October 13, 8AM



Notification of Peaceful Assembly on October 15‏
FR:  The Downtown Developmen​t Board

Dear Downtown Orlando Residents and Merchants,

A group called Occupy Orlando has announced plans to peacefully assemble on Saturday, October 15th beginning at approximately 8:00 am in front of the Orlando Chamber of Commerce with plans to march through downtown, and ultimately occupy a downtown park or other public space.

The specific route for the march/walk appears at this time to be to the Orlando Chamber of commerce, then proceeding down Orange Avenue to the Bank of America building and finally ending at City Hall Plaza.  Once there it is unknown how long the group intends to stay in the plaza.

While the City of Orlando is not associated with this event in any way, the Orlando Police Department will be present to ensure the safety of all protesters as well as those who live and work in downtown Orlando.  The City of Orlando has communicated with the leaders of this loosely organized group in order to take steps to minimize traffic disruptions related to this event.

The Occupy Wall Street movement started in New York City and “Occupy” events like these have happened in dozens of cities across the country in recent weeks, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. The vast majority of these events have been conducted peacefully.

We support the right of Orlando’s residents to protest and exercise free speech rights, and encourage all who participate to do so peacefully and with respect to the rights of others.
