The largest city in the Central Valley of California, Fresno is home to almost half a million people. Named after the Spanish word for Ash tree, it sits close to the San Joaquin river. Like many western towns, Fresno owes its existence to the creation of a railway station in 1872. The flood prone San Joaquin encouraged worried residents to move from the nearby river town of Millerton, at that time the county seat, to the farther inland Fresno. Millerton was eventually abandoned and permanently flooded by the creation of Friant dam.
Today, Fresno is not only the economic hub of Califonia’s breadbasket, but the legal center of the central valley. Fresno is the seat of the Fifth Appellate District of the State of California Court of Appeal, the Fresno County Superior Court and the Fresno Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.
What has made Fresno unique is the Occupy Fresno Movement. The Occupy Fresno group wanted to “increase the peace” during the protests and gatherings at the Courthouse Park. Therefore, there have been talks with Fresno County to obtain a “stand-still agreement” that would encourage a more peaceful atmosphere during protests in Courthouse Park. This is quite a change from other Occupy protestors who seem to favor not-so-peaceful demonstrations to make their point. Occupy Fresno’s unique and refreshing perspective has definitely made Fresno a topic of discussion!
