Occupy Saint John Protest Becomes Tent Village

The Occupy Saint John protest continues as a group of mostly youth are living in tents in King Square.
The movement is opposed to the growing separation between the rich and poor and what they believe is increasing corporate greed.
Carl Beardsell tells CHSJ News they plan to stay as long as it takes.

He says they want to stay at least until next Saturday but he says as long as they have two or three people they can stay as long as they want.

Beardsell says no one including the City police has asked them to move along.
He adds most people are supportive and some of the local businesses have made donations including food.
