Back in Idyllwild this week, Zora taught the members of the local Occupy movement one of the chants we learned in New York City. Video by John Drake.
We met Pat Walsh at Occupy Wall Street’s info booth. She really gave us an earful, recounting her experiences as a nurse in the Vietnam War and explaining why she traveled from her home in Colorado all the way to NYC’s Liberty Square to contribute to the OWS cause. Thanks for your compassion and commitment, Pat. And for sharing some of your story with us!
For the past week, Zoraborealis and I have witnessed the emergence of the occupation movements in Chicago, New York and Washington, DC. We’ve marched amidst tens of thousands of people from diverse backgrounds, all united in a common goal: to transform our economic and political systems so that they better address the needs of the earth and its inhabitants.
This was shot and edited on board an Amtrak train speeding eastbound from California. Enjoy!
Markopolo and Zoraborealis embark on a cross country rail trip to the Occupation of Wall Street and the Occupation of Washington. Is democracy still breathing in the USA? Stay tuned to find out.
