The Occupy movement began in New York City a year ago, and just a few weeks later had spread to Tampa, where its emergence at Lykes Gaslight and Curtis Hixon parks introduced an exciting and dynamic presence into the body politic. The occupation also led to a series of clashes with local police, as members were allowed to sleep overnight, but only on the sidewalk in front of Curtis Hixon.
