On the first day of the Occupy National Gathering, the excitement to meet one another was hampered by police confrontation. This led to indecision and internal arguments over contingency plans, but by the evening, Occupiers were safely assembled at jail solidarity or at the National Gathering Comedy Show.
Today we're having the second meeting for those who are interested in forming and organizing the details for the 'Adopt An Occupier' project. We will be gathering at 2:45pm this afternoon (December 12, 2011) and the meeting will start at 3:00pm.
In support of our West Coast brothers and sisters, the amazing Meghan Devonshire has written this press release--to be mic checked today, where ever you are!
Read this out loud on the train, on the street, in the bathroom, at the bookstore, with your friends, by yourself, at work, to your cats, to your waitress, to your office, to a cop.
Just make sure that by the end of the day, more people know about this amazing action than when we all woke up. The media won't be covering this, so WE have to.
