Un-Occupied USF

Occupy USF protesters decided to limit the scope of their protests to weekdays, and convene only for general assembly meetings over the weekend at 7 p.m. The protestors have no definite end date, though their Facebook page states they will occupy the grounds until January 2012. About 20 protesters gathered in the free speech zone outside of Cooper Hall on Wednesday night to show their solidarity against corporations that account for the top 1 percent of America and protest tuition hikes at USF.

The full-time occupation and tabling to raise awareness will resume during the week, Mike Blosser, a graduate student studying applied physics who helped organize the event, said.

A second Occupy USF Teach-in with faculty and students is scheduled for Thursday outside Cooper Hall.
