It had been a long night and some of us only getting to sleep in the wee hours of the morning. With sleep deprivation and incredible heat wave we forged our way to Philly. It was decided among a few of us (when we heard from Chris Wambaugh of Kalamazoo, MI) that we would meet, them from DC and us from Newark so we could make our grand entrance together. (more…)

Last stop before Philly and what a stop it was. We entered Newark with the usual fanfare and got a very welcoming reception. For Tino and Tony it was like coming home since this is where the last 5 months started for Tino especially who’s spent that whole time on the “V”. We gathered in the park, shared food and stories. Clark from WikiLeaksTruck was there as was Julia from Vinylated. Both of whom were responsible for the Bradley Manning WikiLeaks graphics on the RV. It was 5 months ago we were outside in the cold on a Newark side street under a street light putting vinyl on the “V”. Awesome time! Now months later and over 9,000 miles more we’re back. After eating lunch we made some buttons for OTR, Newark and Anonymous. (more…)
