Example of a previous OTS: Tompkins Square Park. Occupy Town Square is a traveling celebration of free and peaceable assembly. For a few hours a week, Occupy Town Square brings the spirit, joy and civic engagement of the Liberty Square Occupation to neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs. As previously seen in Jackson Heights, Tompkins Square, Bushwick, Washington Square Park, Staten Island, Upper West Side & elsewhere!
