Occupy Richmond Protestors Back Tea Party


Occupy Richmond protesters released a statment backing the Richmond Tea Party in their battle with city hall, reports Reuters. The statement said "it would not surprise us" if the move was "retaliation" for the tea party's criticism of Mayor Dwight Jones.

The tea party previously charged Jones for unfairly applying city ordinances in order to benefit the Occupy Richmond movement with regard to using city property. The city eventually took action and the protesters were fined for trespassing on public property.

"The Tea Party and Occupy movements disagree on many, many issues," Occupy Richmond's Thursday statement said.

"This should not stop all Americans from proudly standing together against government abuses."

The statement ultimately called on the city to drop the tea party audit and refund any money the group has paid.

"I'm glad the Occupy group agrees with us," Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens said. "We just think it's very coincidental that they (the city) would issue audits, and we also believe that we filed everything that was required of us and never owed any taxes."

Mayor Jones had released a statement this week saying a letter sent to the Richmond Tea Party about overdue tax filings was "routine."
