We are the 99 percent who do not own food trucks. The Occupy Boston protest has delayed until spring a food truck festival planned for Boston's Rose Kennedy Greenway. W. Marc Bernsau | Business Journal

The Rose Kennedy Greenway’s Mobile Food Fest, which was scheduled for this Saturday and was set to include a plethora of delicacies from at least a dozen local food trucks, has been postponed until spring.

The food truck festival was set to take place on Dewey Square, where Occupy Boston protesters have been living in a tent city for nearly two weeks. The Boston encampment grew out of a similar Occupy Wall Street protest that began a week earlier. Similar protests have sprung up in several U.S. cities, coalescing around the populist slogan, “We are the 99 percent.”
