Occupy Gainesville Reaches 100 Days
It's been a bittersweet first 100 days for activists with Occupy Gainesville.
Activists say on one hand, their relationship with local government has improved significantly.
When the movement first began, occupiers complained of harassment by police.
Four were arrested in October for refusing to leave the Bo Diddley Plaza.
Since then, it's been relatively smooth.
However those, who been there since the beginning say they've seen active participation fade.
Members say the movement will get a big boost on Friday.
"Occupy the Courts" will take place starting at 1p.m. It will feature nationally-renowned activist, Dr. Cornell West.
