We occupied Buffalo for the 2nd time….

October 13th, 2012 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in Buffalo | New York -OWS | NYC-End the War | Toronto-Canada | Tour of Duty - (Comments Off on We occupied Buffalo for the 2nd time….)

Buffalo might be economically depressed, but the people are warm, loving and inviting. Visiting for the second time, we were treated well and welcomed by honks of “we get it” as we rolled through. Our 31 ft of billboard surely captures the attention of passers by. We are making our mini-tour before heading to D.C. and Buffalo was a city we wanted to hit again.

Both Windsor and Toronto were on my “get to” list so while I headed to Canada the “V” stayed in Buffalo and attended a couple sites of her own. We didn’t bang any pots this time but some of the crew did attend the Radical Philosophy Conference which they tell me was very good. (more…)

OTR-Tour of Duty with Occupy Armed Forces

October 8th, 2012 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in Buffalo | New York -OWS | Vietnam Veterans Memorial Vigil - (Comments Off on OTR-Tour of Duty with Occupy Armed Forces)

Our “OTR-Tour of Duty” mission will be to educate as many people as we can, about what’s going on in America. Issues which people should be concerned and speaking out about. A good example that should outrage everyone, would be when Vets were arrested in Vietnam Memorial Park, NYC as they held a vigil for the war veterans on Oct. 7th. The police say the park closed at 10pm and would not let the calling of fallen vets continue. It was outrageous. (more…)

Occupy Buffalo

June 16th.

Tried to get into the Juneteenth Parade. There’s nothing more satisfying than getting kicked out of the Juneteenth Parade on MLK! Not once but twice. We broke through the police tape and squeezed in front of a bunch of motorcycles. But, wasn’t long before we got corralled and sent off the path. “They” didn’t like our message? Or our chant…”Education is a right, not just for the Rich & White”? Actually the cop was really nice until the 2nd one came along and told her we weren’t registered to be in the parade, so they made us turn right….right out of the park! So we swung around and went to the Back of the Parade where after a few blocks we got corralled again….this time they threatened to give us a ticket and impound the “V” if we didn’t leave. (more…)
