Occupy Charlottesville is a protest movement affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Members of the group moved into Charlottesville's Lee Park in mid-October and are asking to be allowed to stay past Thanksgiving, the day their 30-day permit is expected to expire. [1] The ongoing occupation prompted questions from Jefferson Area Tea Party chair Carole Thorpe regarding whether the city showed favoritism by granting the group a permit. [2] Their leaders have claimed city government has shown favoritism by allowing the group to stay in the Lee Park overnight. [3]
