'NYT' Visits Occupy Camp in Charlotte

And they are not impressed.  Turnout, in their view, is light, following modest crowds in Tampa (which at the time were largely attributed to horrid weather).  Even some of the campers seemed to have expected more.  But the "police state" claims about the arrangements to thwart protesters also might have discouraged folks. This story has just now appeared online  so we'll see how the activists respond.

UPDATE  Times covers march of 200 halted just now and arrest of at least one marcher--a Bradley Manning backer. Then  a "stand off."  With copters overhead. But a current Tim Pool livestream seems to show that things have broken up now.
