On Sunday (Oct. 21), one year after Occupy Albany set up camp, from which they were eventually evicted, Occupiers marched to Academy Park to review the year and celebrate. While they’ve moved out of the park and into an office on Madison Avenue, the group has kept busy. With 20 working groups, Occupy Albany has hosted more than 25 teach-ins, 50 films, and 48 guest speakers in the past year. Though the Occupiers did not obtain a permit for their birthday gathering in the park, they had no confrontation with the police.
