Chanting, “We are the 99%” and “We are Oakland,” about 50 members of the Occupy Boise group marched around downtown Boise Wednesday night and congregated at City Hall.
Members of the group told the GUARDIAN they were demonstrating solidarity with their counterparts in Oakland, California who came under physical attack Tuesday in a confrontation with police.
They marched past the “Hole” at 8th and Main which is the site of a proposed high rise office tower. Zions Bank and the developer are set to receive as much as $4 million in tax money from Boise citizens via the CCDC and the group has said they wanted to call attention to the fact.
