Tuesday morning, the Occupy Caravan will be continuing their journey…next stop Elko. Let’s welcome our Occupy brothers and sisters in true Nevada style and help them to have a good journey on behalf of improving our democracy. All are welcome!
About the Occupy Caravan:
“This Land is Our Land” Summer Caravan kicks off June 11 from Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We will travel three routes across America on our way to Philadelphia for the five-day Occupy National Gathering that ends July 4 on Independence Mall!
At each stop, cities will be organizing events to welcome the Caravan which brings with it musicians, speakers and performers — a traveling democratic road show that educates as it entertains!
Feed-in caravans will be joining along the way, and a full day of celebration is scheduled in half a dozen Hub cities. Invite neighbors, friends and family to come out for this continental gathering where we’ll share stories as individuals and communities growing stronger together — then hop on board and travel the rest of the way to Philly!
How bad do you want your democracy? Enough to take it back? As we celebrate the history of America that we are about to write, only one thing is required:
