Leaving Cleveland, hello to Parkersburg

September 6th, 2013 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in Cleveland | On route to Stone Creek - (Comments Off on Leaving Cleveland, hello to Parkersburg)
We said goodbye to our favorite warrior Culann Tha Lecher and after he made sure we were supplied with gas, we headed south. Just after Canton we stopped at a small town of about 300 called Stone Creek where we met Vicki Kinsley (bar owner for 15 yrs). She and the gentlemen in the bar were quite intrigued with our “V”. We had fish and chips special which was awesome.   When it came to the table we thought she had put both orders on one plate it was so big! (more…)

Cleveland occupiers were few and far between but we managed to do some great outreach while in the city. We found ourselves Don B downtown and he took us around and gave us a little tour and spot in Ohio City where we managed to Occupy the Market Garden during the Presidential elections. It was quite busy in the back room where many Dem’s were meeting after the grand opening of their Campaign headquarters just down the street. (more…)

Occupy Cleveland – 99th City

Cleveland is alive and well. One of the longest standing encampments from Oct. 6th to May 5th. A very dedicated bunch who have a great report with the police. In fact the story is that the police had to be called in from another County to dismantle the camp because the Cleveland Police didn’t want to do it. The Occupiers (as we all do) fight for the rights of everyone who is feeling the cuts and dips into pensions. They are the 99% too. (more…)
