Occupy Fort Lauderdale Starts Its Occupation (Live Video)

Occupy Fort Lauderdale now has an address -- Bubier Park at 32 E. Las Olas Blvd.

The group announced it has started a 24/7 occupation of the park, which began with the first group of people on Saturday night after their first demonstration.

The next meeting of the group -- labeled the "Facilitation Meeting" -- will take place in the park at 7:30 tonight, alongside the people who are calling the park home for a while.

A live video stream of the occupation in Bubier Park has gone offline a few times since the protesters set up camp, but you can watch the occupation when they're live in the video below:
