    Possibly the stupidest move that the Democrats and/or the City of Charlotte could make:

    Charlotte, North Carolina, the host city for the Democratic National Convention next year to renominate President Obama, has announced that it will not tolerate planned Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. Rather, the city council enacted a series of restrictions on the allowed locations in which protesters can demonstrate and the outright ban on overnight stays.

    New York Magazine reports: “The North Carolina city, sometimes called the "Wall Street of the South," is not taking any chances, and is already working to pass an ordinance that would make occupying downtown spaces with tents a "public nuisance," in addition to banning "noxious substances," padlocks, and other camping equipment. The fact that it would knock out the city's current overnight demonstrators is an added bonus.”

    The constitutionality of the ruling is already being challenged by the National Lawyers Guild, which has been providing the Occupy movement with free legal services and counsel.


    May the FORCE be with you!

    Apparently they don't want to step in anything or have any delegates mounted without permission.
    How is obama working out for you?

    So the Democrats encourage and support OWS, but they don't want them near their convention.

    12. well crap

    actually think the big one will be the repubs, for chicago replay..token demonstrations at Charlotte.. big demonstrations at Tampa, maybe this time the press will cover.. they minimized the protest coverage of the last 2 rebublican conventions, detained thousands, with no press coverage..
