WASHINGTON – Some things really are sacred. Occupy D.C. protesters are changing the time of their daily general assembly meeting Sunday so they can watch the Super Bowl.

After many tents were cleared from the park Saturday, the group held their normal 6 p.m. decision-making meeting and decided to move their Sunday meeting up to 4 p.m. to accommodate protesters who want to watch the game.

General Assembly meetings are held at Occupy camps around the nation and give all protesters an opportunity to speak and to play a role in making decisions about what the protesters will do.
