Occupy Janesville Rocked In Solidarity

About 40 local residents occupied two street corners at Court and Main in downtown Janesville on a breezy and beautiful Saturday afternoon to stand in solidarity with the 99 Percent/Occupy Wall Street global protests. While drivers in passing cars honked their horns to show their support, the peaceful demonstration carried on in polite conversation rocking to the tunes of solo singer/guitarist Bill Breitsprecher.

The restoration of the American Dream, jobs not cuts, taxing Wall Street and stopping Paul Ryan were the primary themes on the signs carried by the the rally participants. After about two hours, the group slowly began to disperse. There was no sign of pro-Wall Street counter protesters at this event.
