I'll go downtown again one day next week with another donation for the food table and the comfort station. Anyone who would like to contribute from anywhere in our great, if fucked up, land can follow this link to the New York City General Assembly: http://nycga.cc/donate/
The Occupation can receive packages at the local UPS store:
UPS Store 118A
Fulton st #205
New York, NY, 10038
There is nowhere to cook down there, so they need non-perishable food items like trail mix and dried fruit. They also need arnica, melatonin and homeopathic remedies since the medical station can't distribute Advil or other over-the-counter medications. They need trash bags and ponchos, for sure, but anyone who wants to simply donate cash so the occupiers can get what they need at any given moment can also do that at the General Assembly page.
I still haven't quite figured out how to deal with photos with my new set up, but I'm working on it. Meanwhile, here are some I took last week down on in Liberty Park:
The sign display - and of course they reuse the signs over and over again when they're marching
But it's not just kids. This grandpa wants everyone to know it takes all kinds of folks to make 99%. There was even a lady in a wheel chair. The guy sitting under the blue umbrella is working at the information desk.
Regarding the Media:
Who knows where this guy is from? Not the Mainstream Media, that's for sure.
CNN van. They're jacking off in there . . .
Here are some people getting ready to march to One Police Plaza. Note the old guy. Honestly, there are old folks all over the place.
No one was arrested that day. The cops must have been plotting to corral the marchers on the Brooklyn Bridge less than 24 hours later.
