County Commissioners and community members gathered in the crowded Missoula County Courthouse Annex  room 201 today  to discuss  a resolution that would prohibit camping and structures on county property. Close to thirty community members got up to speak on behalf of the Occupy Movement and their rights to freedom of speech and their rights to peacefully assemble.  Community member Curtis Loggow  says the resolution is an attack on the Occupy Movements’ civil liberties.

Only a few spoke in support of the resolution stating camping on the lawn is “totally inappropriate in a nation governed by law” Commissioner Jean Curtiss says the resolution is not an infringement on first amendment rights.
