At Occupy Boston, they found romance
A bond forged in crowd who shared fervent beliefs
Anya Karasik and Robert Stitham are one of many couples who forged a bond at Occupy. As the protesters’ tents sprouted, so did romance - it wasn’t long until Occupiers were stealing kisses at the food tent, holding hands during general assemblies, cuddling on the bench near the Gandhi statue. Now, after the end of the 102-day encampment, those who found love among the tents are struggling to keep the flame alive. Dewey Square was not the only encampment where romance bloomed. A couple who met at Occupy Wall Street tied the knot.
