Hundreds attend teach-in on the Occupy Movement

PROVIDENCE, RI –

"Tell me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like! Tell me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like!"

That's what protesters shouted as they marched to a teach-in yesterday at Brown University on the Occupy Wall Street movement. Hundreds of people attended the event to hear Brown professors talk about how the current wave of protests fits into the history of social movements.

A group calling themselves Occupy Providence plans to take up residence in Burnside Park in downtown Providence following a demonstration on Saturday. The group is angry about income inequality and political corruption. They say they will stay there indefinitely.
