Occupy Marchers Leave Havre de Grace For D.C.
Protesters stayed at the St. John's Episcopal Church parish hall Thursday into Friday and will travel to Joppatowne on Friday, and then to Baltimore and eventually to Washington.
They came, they stayed and then they left.
A group of approximately 30-40 Occupy protesters marched through Cecil County Thursday, took an MTA bus across the Hatem Bridge and marched into downtown Havre de Grace on Thursday night. The group stayed at the St. John's Episcopal Church parish hall, and departed Friday morning before 10 a.m.
Patch caught up with the Occupy members marching down Route 40 around 10:15 Friday morning.
They will pass through Aberdeen with the goal of finding a safe place to stay overnight near the Harford-Baltimore County line Friday night.
The group intends to visit the Occupy Baltimore encampment this weekend, before marching to Washington, D.C., for what one marcher called "a huge rally" in the nation's capital.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Grace Place had no affiliation with the marcher's overnight stay in Havre de Grace. Grace Place is simply one of the primary community organizations that utilizes the parish hall at St. John's. Patch regrets the error.
