There has been a lot of discussion on The Patch about whether Albany welcomes or rejects the Occupy the Farm protest. I'd like a place where we Albanyans can actually just weigh in. I propose this space as a safe place to say whether you support the Farm of the Occupy the Farm movement, or whether you'd like the Farm to dismantle and leave for good.
I hereby promise to respect Albany residents who disagree with me. I hope others will follow this lead.
Mostly I'm just curious. I don't think we have any real power in this forum to keep or change anything, as the real powers lie elsewhere. (Please, no commenting on that; I admit in advance I could be wrong; let's keep comments to a simple support or do not support.)
I'd just like to get a survey of Patch readers who live in Albany, a safe survey so people feel comfortable posting.
To vote, just say in the comments that you are a resident (honor system) and whether you support the "Farm" staying as it is, or whether you would like the "Farm" to completely leave.
Here's my vote, and it's only one person:
I'd like the "Farm" to leave, to be gone for good.
PS: I'm not trying to deny anyone's freedom of speech, but to get a simple look at the feeling in Albany. There are other threads on The Patch to comment on. Thanks in advance for your tolerance.
