Over 1,000 people gathered to join in the Occupy Orange County protest and march that took place today in the Irvine, Tustin area, according to the Coast Report. The OC Weekly also reported that there were 1,000 protesters. For some reason the OC Register reported that there were only 600 protesters. Click here to see the official Occupy OC photo album.
The event began at 10 a.m. with people gathering across the sprawling green lawn in front of city hall. An hour later, a small band of aging rockers armed with a saxophonist played the lulling strains of Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them,” as a long line of people snaked for several blocks to the intersection of Barranca and Jamboree, according to the OC Weekly.
