Poet’s Park has a fountain running through it, but it has been mostly drained for the winter. This platform area looks like it is used for a stage, and only had two or three tents on it possibly because it is low visibility from the streets. A blanket has fallen into the water.
I arrived at Poet’s Park in downtown Oklahoma City early in the morning, before most of the camp had risen. I was greeted by Justin, met Mike who dropped by to visit the camp between his two jobs. I also witnessed a rather tense confrontation between “Tony” and Justing and Jaymie.
Things seem to be rather tense around this Occupy camp, both in real 3D space and online. If you’re interested in following what’s happening from the Occupiers viewpoint, follow @occupyOKCity on Twitter. There’s another account called @Occupy_OKC that is spouting dubious talking points by such folks as Andrew Breitbart and James O’Keefe.
