Florida occupation digs in after meeting with Governor Scott turns sour

Michael Sampson, an organizer with a group that has been occupying Florida’s capitol building since Monday afternoon, says that Florida governor Rick Scott unexpectedly came to Tallahassee last night to meet with the occupiers.

The group, known as the Dream Defenders, had been requesting a meeting because they want Scott to call a special legislative session to address topics including the acquittal of George Zimmerman, racial profiling, and what they call “the school-to-prison pipeline.”

The occupiers say their concerns were not addressed, however, and vowed to continue their occupation until a special legislative session is called.
