Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
#Occupy BostonEmily Ferola
Things look a lot
calmer here tonight than they do on YouTube.It's pretty chill. They're just having the GA. I think
people are recuperating from what happened [last week]. I was watching from
across the street, standing around the sidelines. I didn't necessarily agree
with the moving of camps. I didn't want to get too involved and get in trouble
The cops plowed
through some 60-something-ish veterans to get to the protesters. Why do those
cops hate America?I don't think they hate America.
I read in the Herald that the occupiers are too lazy
to get jobs, yet you're coming from work. What's the deal?I honestly don't know. I don't really appreciate that,
either. A lot of people I know here are working people. Sometimes, the media
tries to skew things with their own opinion.
What's next for
Occupy Boston?There are different paths we could go down. We could get in
trouble and get shut down, or we could keep being peaceful, get organized, and
get a clear message of we're trying to convey. We don't have a centralized
message, so the media is able to skew it different ways.
