Occupant: William, age 24
Lives in: St. Louis; server
Time at Occupy: Past three weeks
Spends the night: Every now and again
Reason to Occupy: "The media marginalizing the event brought me down here. When the media says something is small and insignificant, you can bet it's not. Coming together as a group is difficult, but I think we're ready to do something good. The violence in Oakland was initiated by people outside the movement. Occupy is completely nonviolent."
