Cool Quote of the Day: “Tied in a single garment of destiny”

Occupy Caravan vigil at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

Occupy Caravan joins Occupy DC in day-long protests

Occupy Caravan, stopping by the District on its way to an Occupy gathering in Philadelphia, set up symbolic camp in McPherson Park along with Occupy DC. In a marathon day of protest activities, they demonstrated against Metro fare hikes, turned out in solidarity for hunger striking postal workers, and held a vigil at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial to stop the practice of “stop and frisk.”

Last night they joined the Sleepful Protest at Bank of America and delivered a Notice of Foreclosure to the financial institution Friday morning.

 

Occupy Caravan to arrive in DC

On June 11, Occupiers from Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco set off across the country on three different routes, stopping at several cities along the way. Their destination: an Occupy National Gathering in Philadelphia.

They arrive in Washington, DC on June 28 for two days of revelry, marches and actions before departing Saturday for Philadelphia.
