New Facebook page: "Occupy Tampa for the Republican National Convention"
Here's yet another manifestation of the movement that started with Occupy Wall Street: a new Facebook page titled "Occupy Tampa for the Republican National Convention."
On Oct. 28, the page's administrator issued this invitation: "Why not practice your 1st amendment rights (if we still have them in August) , and get a nice tan at the same time?"
Since then, the page has featured posts about California's medical marijuana industry, a low-tech way to annoy credit card companies and suggestions about using over-the-counter liquid antacids as possible antidotes to a tear gas attack.
Then there was this offer, courtesy of the page's sponsor: "If you end up getting a picture (and or video) of ANY family values oriented conservative Republican visiting one of Tampa's many adult night clubs -- you will WIN A FREE T-SHIRT! It's just a regular T-shirt but I'll be happy to buy it for you. How fun is this convention occupation gonna be?"
