Skip to comments.‘Occupy’ protesters branch out

The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury mans upcoming trial.
The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Bostons ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.
The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and acted as a media wing for al-Qaeda.
Occupy Boston hosted the pro-Mehanna rally, but, officially, the leaderless group doesnt have a position on the case.
For 10 days, Occupy Boston members have been living on the Greenway, in a tented community that has solar-generated power, a library, and street signs so people can navigate their way around the maze of pitched tents.
Today at 2 p.m., students from as many as 10 area colleges will meet on Boston Common to support the protesters, who say corporations have too much influence in American politics.
>>doesnt have a position on the case
Yeah right. Weasel words. We know how they feel.
And this stuff about solar generated power—huh? I thought Mayor Menino got them hooked up to free electricity from
the city. Though he has said recently they may be wearing out their welcome and perhaps someday they’ll be booted out.
Or maybe when today’s 83 degree weather turns to more like 35-40, they’ll leave on their own.
It does appear that they have about everything stupid and leftist pretty much covered. Pelosi et. al. must be jealous.
