Our Latest Work
With meetings wrapped up and a brighter future mapped, Occupy heads North from Philly, at least the Guitarmy does, with sometimes rocker/activist and ex-Rage Against the Machine maestro Tom Morello at its head. Morello in his Rage salad days are featured in the video above. Details on the march are at philly.com, blogger and tweeter Dustin Slaughter offers a broadcast (on occasion) of the live event via ustream
While Occupiers bake in Philly sun and prepare to join the masses swarming Independence Mall for the USA's 236th birthday, they may be forgiven for embracing/echoing the spirit of the Founding Fathers, who envisioned a democratic, or at least “republican,” form of government.

While the United States from Eastern Seaboard points West swelters - amidst power outages and an increasingly shaky grid - the first ever Occupy National Gathering (Occupy NG) gets underway in Philly. In the soaring temperatures : speakers, workshops, art/performances and the omni-present “clashes” between protesters and cops, who seem as intent on discouraging assembly as the protesters are in hurling insults and taunts; non-violently, of course. As seen in the video above, the extreme heat works wonders for the temperament.
They are the target of Occupy, and now they make their first cameo n the comic Archer and Armstrong, as a group of arch-villains called “The One Percent” who the teen heroes must take on. The characterization shows the villains running a secret cabal in the bowels of Wall Street, risking human lives and the fate of civilization itself in their pursuit of riches.
More and more blogosphere attention shines on this weekend's upcoming national gathering. Gather.com says the weekend won't be a turning point as much a s reiteration of Occupy's basic message, that “banks need to stop reaming their customers and the 1% need to pay their share,” sentiments most Americans will likely say amen to.
Occupy New Haven plans to spearhead a New England contingent of 40-100, beginning the trip by meeting on the New Haven green (the same one from which they were evicted back in April) where they feature an “underwater mortgage action” at 5 pm Thursday to highlight the plight of foreclosed homeowners, followed by a talk at 7 pm by Mark Naison, professor of History at Fordham University who will give a talk on the radical transitions of the past and how they will help Occupy confront present day challenges.
