Occupy Detroit

OTR is now sitting in front of 5900 Michigan St. with the occupiers. Just after arriving I interviewed Shontrese and Aliyah who were out in the parking lot of the local grocery store getting petitions signed for home healthcare. Happy to report they are now part of the occupy movement. Both just went into the building to see what they can do to help. This is what it’s all about. Finding more like minded people who get it! A nice touch since about 1/2 hr ago we got kicked out of Walmart who called the cops on us because we didn’t leave fast enough. I found it rather entertaining but Tino wasn’t impressed with me continuing my conversation with a wonderful lady Lee who was asking lots of questions. She gets it and was very impressed with what we’re doing. So in less than a couple hours we have 3 more occupiers and 9 signatures for support of Bradley Manning! (more…)
