Update: Breaking news out of Ashtabula today — it is no longer occupied.
At its height, Occupy Ashtabula counted 15 protesters and one dynamite gazebo. That number dwindled, and eventually the campers packed up and headed home. Via the Star Beacon:
City Manager Anthony Cantagallo said he believes the winter weather is partly responsible.
Logical. The group says it still plans to organize protests at banks and occasionally gather for picnics.
There's an Occupy Ashtabula. Yeah, not totally surprising, but the city best known for its bridges and being mentioned in a Bob Dylan song has joined any number of other smaller suburbs and rural areas in the Occupy Movement.
Unlike most of them, however, Occupy Ashtabula looks like they're enjoying a nice gazebo. More pics over at Daily Kos.
