During the first week of the #OccupyLosAngeles occupation of the lawn at L.A. City Hall, I read a tweet that a local pizza joint had sent pizzas to the protesters. Impressed, I called and bought 2 large pies and had them delivered to the occupation, something the girl on the phone said was happening all day since the tweet went out.
Just one example of how anyone can help keep the movement going.
With Winter approaching, the occupations in places like NYC, Chicago – DENVER! Brrrr! – are going to face a challenge as great as the thuggish police and callous Mayors that have descended on many of the camps.
The #Occupy movement is nothing short of a war against those that have rigged the political/financial system. It’s the battle to bring back the rule of Law and apply it to everyone – regardless of how rich or powerful they are – the FatCats, politicians and Corporations all.
Wars need to be financed. In the U.S.A., during both World Wars I & II, the government issued War Bonds to let each citizen contribute to the war effort by opening their wallets. Now, with the Occupy Supply Fund, we can put our (dwindling) financial power behind the “troops” on the front line of the movement.
“The Occupy Supply Fund is a project of Firedoglake.com to support the Occupy movement by working directly with demonstrators and organizers to identify needs, raise money, purchase and distribute those goods to occupiers.
100% of your contribution to the Occupy Supply fund will be used to purchase and distribute only the goods requested by the occupiers. Help us ensure these historic demonstrations survive the winter months and beyond”
Unemployed? Get out and stand with the occupiers in your city. Got a job, kids – a fear of camping? – and you still want to support the movement? Buy a “War Bond”: #OccupySupply.
