3/26/12 Answer LA is also doing a march for Trayvon. If you feel compelled to join them I ask you do, bu remember this is not an occupy event, this is not for occupy, it is for support of Trayvon and his family. http://www.facebook.com/events/277407669004499/
Also next sunday here will be another event at the park the 3/25 march ended at. This is also not an OLA event, but is a great opportunity to meet people in the community, hear their struggles, and be an observer. When I get info I will post it.
In a couple of weeks our 6 month anniversary is coming up. People still seem to be thinking Occupy is not doing anything. Why is this? Because we do not control the corporate media. We depend on citizen journalists for news. This works great for those of us in the know, well for the most part, but it does nothing for the rest of the audience we are trying to reach.
I have been thinking a lot lately about how to reach more people. We need to use their tactics against them. One of the issues is we just cannot compete on the monetary scale that big business does. Taking out commercial ads during prime time TV is extremely expensive, as are full page ads in widely distributed publications. So how do we overcome this?
ABSTRACT: I might say he is the antithesis of a conspiracy researcher. An almost mythological attorney who doesn’t like to see strange coincidences passed-off as empirical evidence. He can quickly turn the tables on someone thinking they’ve got their argument made, and instead make their attestation tumble like a house of cards, leaving that person dissolute and unable to substantiate the claim any longer.
Wednesday, January 4th was a long day for Rich, a ruddy-faced and Bronx-accented member of Occupy Los Angeles. There was an event planned that afternoon at the home of Faith Parker, a 78-year-old retired schoolteacher and mother facing foreclosure. The problem: Ms. Parker lived eleven miles away in South Central. Rich, 20 years homeless, rose early and began walking. “Sure, I could’ve bummed bus fare. But then you don’t get to see anything along the way,” he later told me.
