Video: Greenway Conservancy Board Chair Georgia Murray talks about “Occupy Boston” and their establishment of a Tent City on the Greenway parks.
At Tuesday’s annual meeting of the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, the Board discussed how Occupy Boston is getting along on the Greenway. After establishing Dewey Square their home base over the weekend, the encampment is now into its fourth day. Although permits were not obtained, Greenway officials seem to be rolling with the “occupation.”
Georgia Murray, Board Chair, commented that “It is a little messy down there but it is democracy at work.” The Greenway has asked the protesters to stay out of the flower beds where there are sprinklers and vegetable tepees. So far the protesters at the Dewey Square Tent City, known in Greenway parlance as Parcel 22, have been “model citizens” according to Greenway personnel.
Murray complimented Boston Police for supervising the situation and said the Conservancy has no idea how long Occupy Boston will stay on the Greenway.
