For me it was a very sad moment. When one of the main issues of the day is the cost of higher ed and the lack of jobs available to grads it seems to me that alienating students who are not part of the rally was very short sighted. These are potential recruits to the movement and the conflict was a very big turn-off for those who just wanted a photo to remember their experiences at UGA. I felt ashamed by the short sighted, mis-directed, confrontational behavior.
I am a very radical supporter of the occupy movement and feel that what happened was not called for.
