Occupy Calendar for this week–Wednesday to Wednesday (from Patricia Gray)

If you know of an event that might be of interest to Occupy activists who want to improve the lives of the 99%, please let me know the details.  (pat1936@gmail.com)    I will put it on the calendar so that together we can be strong in supporting our friends and neighbors in their efforts to make needed changes in our community.  We have to get out on the streets and frighten the 1%.

We are the many, they are the few.
