The Occupy Athens protest group is holding a march Friday night. Organizers said they will be marching throughout downtown Athens, spreading their anti-corporate message. Occupy Athens began demonstrating near the iconic University of Georgia Arch last month.
The area around the famous arch at the University of Georgia has been home to Occupy Athens protesters round-the-clock since Oct. 6. Now UGA police are enforcing a long-standing policy that prevents demonstrators from rallying on the steps at the arch, and they cannot camp in the area.
