Following the example of the Occupy Wall Street movement, demonstrators took to the Grove Street PATH Station and later to Journal Square last night for what they said was a “general assembly” to plan their indefinite occupation of Journal Square.

“We’re really trying to influence people’s minds . . . we dream about having a world where everybody’s equal and working together. Well, let’s do it right now,” said Alexander, 24, a Newark-area resident who helped organize protesters both last night.

"The cops and the city of Jersey City are making it hard for everyone, not just to occupy but to express our opinion, our issues, our stand on what's happening in society right now," said Yves, an occupy New Jersey protester. "They're basically curtailing our rights to express what we feel are the burning issues of the day."
