War resisters – US + Canada

October 14th, 2012 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in NYC-End the War | Toronto-Canada - (Comments Off on War resisters – US + Canada)

Micah, Jules and Chris speak out about the war and why all soldiers should speak out and help stop the U.S. agression against other Countries. During my recent visit to Canada I met Jules and Chris along with their partners Nicole and Stephanie to talk about what it was like for them during their tours to Afghanistan. Micah, who is on board now (met in NYC) has also spoken up against the wars.  Not many know about the suicide rate of young vets, which is about 17 per day. It’s time we all got behind this cause and end the atrocities of war!

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…)

Occupying NYC (Broadway & Times Square)

October 6th, 2012 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in New York -OWS | NYC-End the War - (Comments Off on Occupying NYC (Broadway & Times Square))

Managed to get parking right down in Manhattan on 37 & Broadway. The drone model was in Times Square, where we met some Vets For Peace and the “Grannies”. The turnout wasn’t real great but the enthusiasm was awesome by those who were there. There’s a gathering a march expected for tomorrow Oct. 7th and we hope the people come out in droves for that.
