Jylnn Erikson believes that Occupy Boston is the “revolution of her generation.” Erikson is a 14 year old, home schooled student, who joined the Occupy Boston protest two days ago with one of her friends. They are currently sleeping at the site in a tent and on cardboard to show their solidarity.
Early Tuesday morning Erikson was there when police arrived and started arresting people. She said that many of those arrested were locked in arms chanting “this is a peaceful protest, who do you protect, who do you serve?” Erikson said that they locked arms “to protect the space they were using for a peaceful protest and the police brutally took it from them.”
Erikson hopes that the rest of the world will join the protest to fight against the banks and the corporations.
