The camp may be dismantled and the lawn vacant of tents, but a little activism will be returning to the Irvine Civic Center tonight.

Members of Occupy Orange County, Americans Organized for Change and MoveOn will hold a candlelight vigil in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.

In the wake of Irvine's nearly three-month occupation, organizer D'Marie Mulattieri has said the movement is forgoing tents in favor of marches and rallies a la the civil rights movement. 

A press release on Occupy Orange County's Facebook page encourages people to come down to the intersection of Alton Parkway and Harvard Avenue tonight at 7 p.m. with signs focused on a positive message. Paraphrasing the late, great civil rights leader, the page states, "We are the change we want to see in the world. Dr. King stressed service to community so we encourage everyone to find a way of giving back to your community even in a small way."

Let's find out if 2o ft.  and Mr. Young and all the societal Do Nothings are correct. (Don't tell me that you have a JOB)Let's sit on our butts and hope for failure.  or better yet actively support failure.  (Not)

Dear OccuBrandon.  The Occupy OC charade is over.  Gone to heaven.  Deep 6'd.  Pushing up the daisies.  Dead and buried.

I'm a job creator.  Something you know nothing about.

Job? What's that? I'm the evil opposite of a  trustafarian, biyatch!

I produce products and services. working towards that elusive "job creator" title.  I thought Jesus spent more time building things and occupying Money Exchanges than creating jobs?  Oh I forgot about the 2000 years of Christian Capitalism SPIN. "Greed is good!"- not really.
