There will be an Occupy Anniversary and picnic with open mic on Saturday Sept. 17th. We will have a chance to meet old friends and discuss future plans. I think we need to discuss getting ‘political’, as if we were not always trying to change the government to be more attentive to the 99% over the 1%. Shall we be active in the election in November? Should we sign a petition to open up the Presidential Debates to more candidates than the corporate two? Please mark your calendar and plan to attend the anniversary gathering.
