Occupy Charlotte Splinters Off To Form New Group, People's Coalition of the Carolinas

If that sounds like the "People's Front of Judea" (splitters), it's unintentional; it's just that these groups always conform to the parody.

The reason for the split is optics. Some of the Occupiers were arrested for burning American flags, and this new group is supposedly against that.

We, the members of the Occupy Charlotte Movement are no longer affiliated with the camp at 600 East Trade Street. In light of the recent actions taken by a few anarchistic elements that we do not want to be associated with, we are moving on from the actual Occupation site. The flag burning incident in the early morning of December 30th does not reflect the people or the message of the movement.
