Each weekend we drive the bus to Wall Street and there we stay until Late Sunday night when we have to find another spot. Since even before June 1st, the called for reoccupation, we were there, and still we are helping to Occupy Wall Street. Each Saturday in Solidarity with Turkey, Greece, and now Brazil people have come to the park to rally and when they leave there are still a group of people who stay, always, to occupy, sleeping anywhere from in the park, across the street from the park, at any of the banks in the financial area and at Trinity, at the head of Wall Street.
Occupying seems to be starting out much like last summer did. I remember getting off the bus in NYC late June and going to Trinity where only a handful of people were staying and sleeping. As the summer went on more and more people came to Occupy Wall Street. This summer around June 1st there were only a handful of people, at this time there are at least 15 people sleeping around the financial district each night, at the park during the day, holding signs, sleeping with signs.
It is the time of year where no matter what time I go to the park I will likely see someone around and if we stay in the park a group starts to form, people pass by and see a familiar face and stay, catch up, find out what is going on in the near future. We will soon need to add marching to Wall Street. It’s only a block away, so come to the park because in order to have a mass movement and build momentum we need you, and you, and you, and if your not near Wall Street, start where you are, take public space, get together, start talking, start marching. Another world is possible so start building it.
