Occupy The North Country (In Littleton)

About 20 people who are part of  “Occupy The North Country” gathered outside the post office in Littleton Saturday afternoon.

The idea was to show solidarity with occupy groups throughout the country, said Sean Rutherford, of Littleton.

He said there were wide-ranging concerns from the cost of college to health-care reform.

Rutherford said the North-Country group is new and only about two weeks ago started a Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/#!/OccupyTheNorthCountryNH) to communicate.

While the group was small there were often honks of support from passing motorists.
