Meeting Wednesday could determine future protests



SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Members of the Occupy Spokane movement will meet Wednesday and may decide if they will continue to maintain a 24-hour presence even as temperatures drop this winter.

Sometimes there are only one or two people carrying signs on a little triangle of city property on the corner of Riverside Avenue and Monroe Street.

Some demonstrators vow the movement will continue, even if they have to shovel snow off the site.

Unlike other Occupy Wall Street spinoffs across the nation, Spokane’s has been free of confrontation with law enforcement. Meanwhile, Saturday marches by Occupy Spokane participants and their supporters continue to attract hundreds of people.
