Hello everyone, just a quick update on things. Ten of the former residents of Romneyville are living in a cooperative housing setting in Tampa. We are in need of some help for those residents. Our needs include food, children’s clothes for school, hygiene items, and financial assistance with utilities. If you can help in any way contact me at 727 278 1547 or you can contact John at 813 967 0250. You can give directly to help with Utilities. If you know of any jobs, our residents are looking for jobs as well.
Dear friends, we are in Charlotte, NC at the DNC protests. When the Phillie contingent comes in, the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign will have 35 of our members here. We are at encampment at Marshall Park in downtown Charlotte. Several Occupies, including Occupy Wall Street are here. Also, St. Pete for Peace, Code Pink, the Green Party, Veterans For Peace. We are establishing our encampment as Obamaville, as we speak. It appears that the Democratic Machine is on overtime in attempting to co-opt the protestors. We are on public land, in a very nice park on a small lake. The park already had port-a-lets that were provided indirectly by democratic party supporters.

It is my belief that the Occupation movements must continue to be a horizontally led independent movement of the People. It must be an Anti-Global Corporate Capitalist movement. I agree completely that Move ON, Van Jones, The Tea Party and specifically the Corporate two party system must be resisted. Unfortunately, there are in the Occupy Movement some that believe that the system can be reformed and that the problem is only “Crony Capitalism”, which in my mind is just an excuse for keeping the Capitalist system going. This is most often expressed in those who call themselves “Libertarians”. This is often expressed by middle class individuals who have only just begun to feel the pressure of the Collapsing system.
