Members of the Occupy Albany movement gathered Tuesday to protest aid cuts, network with each other and draw attention to their core message: income inequality. About 40 attendees met at Westminster Presbyterian Church, a block from the Capitol, including local religious leaders and representatives from the city’s welfare groups. A planned Occupy Albany march was canceled due to rain. While their numbers might be dwindling, the group’s inner circle remains active. About a dozen still meet weekly, and their convictions appear as mighty as ever. "We’re here to say the distribution of wealth is enormously skewed, and we can’t go on like that," said Sister Honora Kinney, a board member of the Homeless Action Committee.
