Remember, there are many varied ways to be part of this Process and Movement. Bring family, children, friends, [less for pets tho].
DON’T BE AFRAID !!….
while in America, we are ‘protected’ by constitutional words….compared to others who protest-their-govt-states. So while USA needs to maintain it’s powerful ‘democratic’ reputation, We The People can claim the Freedom to Speak and Address our Grievances to ‘OUR government and representatives’.
When we don’t do this, the Rights to Speak Freely shrivels, evaporates, and dies.
Just come, be PRESENT, enjoy, support and be Proud to be part of OCCUPYers everywhere.
