Occupy Miami's Señor Paz Talks About "Peace City," His Overtown Building Turned Protest Camp
In this week's Miami New Times feature story, Michael Miller explores Occupy Miami's strange journey after getting booted from downtown's Government Center. Displaced protesters moved to a ramshackle apartment complex in Overtown, where the building's owner -- who calls himself
"Señor Paz" -- invited them to live for free.
