Headed to …Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship – 300 E Oak Fort Collins, CO

to Hear: David Cobb, a fiery speaker, and former Green Party presidential candidate give his talk about the American Creation Myth. A question and answer period followed. This presentation is part history lesson and part heart-felt call-to-action. (more…)

We were fortunate enough to be invited to Melanie Schure’s graduation. A special treat given we lent our Guy Fawkes mask to her for a little fun during the ceremony. Throwing caution to the wind Mel let her inner Anonymous take flight and we have the pictures to prove it. Way to go Mel and congrats from us on the “V” for making another monumental moment in Fort Collins!  We wish you all the best in your future endeavors! (more…)

Fort Collins decided it wants to move the Football stadium to the University area.  But, they have a beautiful stadium now set in a gorgeous setting in the side of the foothills with an incredible amount of land they could “occupy” to expand if they wanted to.  But, they’ve decided to spend millions moving the stadium to the Colorado State University where they will totally destroy and eliminate a very functional garden space where the community has been doing great things.

What a surprise it was to find out we won 1st prize in the 5 de Mayo parade as best float!   We found out the parade was happening and decided as a last minute entry to participate thanks to Brandi and Bob for letting us know.   As we arrived around 8 am we were directed to our position and then met a few of the Greeley Occupiers, shared coffee and donuts and stories.  The parade went down 14th about 8 or 9 blocks and straight into the Island Grove Regional Park, where we sat for the duration of the celebrations.   (more…)

May 3,

The “V” is full of passers by and we’re having an great conversation and education session. They now LOVE Occupy & understand about Bradley! The best visits are absolutely the spontaneous ones.

Today we met Steve & Rebecca and had some beautiful artwork donated and put on the “V” :-).   Then we visited with Arnet and his two sons who shared beautiful stories and then gave us some speakers for the “V” so we can blast some tunes on our next parade/march. (more…)

The story began…When we arrived we were waiting for the march to begin and therefore had to circle the park 3 times. On the third round the police had blocked a lane next to the park and stop to tell us that we were not allowed to be in the march and that they intended to arrest ANYONE who was in the streets marching. If we attempted to follow the march or go down the streets impeding traffic they (Tony Lopex DPD Commander) would IMPOUND the vehicle. These Denver police are seriously not into peoples march. (more…)
