Freedom Plaza Is Now Ours

By David Swanson
http://warisacrime.org/content/freedom-plaza-now-ours

And we're never giving it back.  Our permit for Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., expired, we refused to leave, and the Park Police has just proposed to let us stay for four more months. 

We've agreed.  We have not said that when the four months are over and the American Spring is here we will leave.

In fact, we intend to make it possible for anyone to visit D.C. with free accommodations.  Just bring a sleeping bag and agree to work with us to pressure Congress, the White House, K Street, the Pentagon, and all the lobbyists and profiteers for peace and justice.  We have free food, we have free drink, we have free trainings and seminars, we have tents, we have peace keepers, we have a big victory under out belts, and we welcome all peace makers for they shall inherit Freedom Plaza.  We own it.  It is ours.  It shall remain ours world without end.

The Taste of DC food festival just gave us all their remaining food.  Or at least all the individual booths did.  Ben and Jerry's just endorsed us.  Busboys and Poets just fed us.  Businesses that support us will be honored and supported by 99 percent of this country.

So, here's the plan: Bring us your reports from around the country at your local Occupations.  Fill us in here in the Empire's Capital.  We will fill you in too.  We will train and inspire and connect you with the rest of this global movement.  Then go back home energized.  Come down from New York and go back up.  We need to coordinate on a personal level.

Our brothers and sisters in McPherson Square have a growing occupation too.  Join them.  Join us.  We're family.  We disrupted the work of the NSA today, and the Association of the Army's convention at which our women had generals crawling under tanks to avoid cameras.  We shut down a celebration of Christopher Columbus as well.

And Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. sharp in Our Freedom Plaza we will set off to "welcome" Congress back to town.  Join us.  We are legion. 

The one thing that we need now is money, and you can contribute it at http://october2011.org

Or you can wait for the bankster war machine to confiscate your money, eat your retirement, swallow your healthcare, foreclose on your home, and tax you into debt to pay for plutocrats' profiteering.

It's up to you.

It's up to us.
