Occupy Boca Raton Set For Rally This Weekend, Police Prepare

Boca Resort | Expected site of protest this weekend.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We don’t mean to make fun of the Occupy Movement — but there is something about “Occupy Boca Raton” that caries with it a certain element of Saturday Night Live humor, and an image of a bunch of guys named Bernie, women named Pearl, and bronze Lexus sedans parked haphazardly along side of this group demanding better walkers.

But we don’t mean to make fun of the Occupy Movement.

So, for that reason, BocaNewsNow.com shares with you the schedule for this weekend’s Occupy event that will take place outside the Boca Resort. We know that Boca Raton Police are preparing for whatever that brings — whether it’s one protestor or a thousand.
