Supporting those who put themselves in harms way to defend our values is critical to sustaining a culture of resistance so badly needed in this country right now. Can you please chip in $10 to help us send supplies to the Keystone XL Blockaders immediately?

We want to make sure that Occupy groups engaging in actions this summer are likewise equipped to handle the state’s latest dehydration tactic. So we’re launching the Occupy Summer Water Fund specifically to help Occupy groups across the country keep their people hydrated in the heat.

I’m at Occupy Delaware (Wilmington) today to put up the command post tent that Occupy Philadelphia won in the Occupy Supply contest to reward excellence in community activism. Occupy Philadelphia is giving the tent to Occupy Delaware, who has invited occupiers that have been evicted to come live at their encampment.
Occupy Philadelphia will be livestreaming the event, which will be broadcast here (video above). Thanks to everyone for making this possible, and if you can’t make it down to Occupy Delaware, we hope you can join in virtually.
