How exciting to be back occupying the roads!   Since just Dec. 21st we’ve been roaming the streets of southern Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona to soak up some sun and meet new people.

First we met James who dropped a box of food and drinks at our doorstep and then stopped by to give us some information.  Next we ran into a Cold War protestor named Mikey who shared a few of her stories. (more…)

What a great welcome Tucson! Lots of yahoos, horays and thumbs up as the OccuMobile rolled up. Once again we’re surrounded with new friends and we learn new things.   We’re so very fortunate that we are able to unite the Occupy’s in a way that “on-line” cannot. We look forward to meeting at the library tomorrow where we’ll meet more Tucsonites!

Reconciliation meeting was illuminating, informative and like all GA’s filled with passion and somewhat exhausting conversation monopolized by a few who are relentless at monopolizing the floor.   But, this is what democracy is and then some.  Afterward the group had a little fun and came together for a great group photo.  We celebrated our differences with a wonderful meal provided by some nice people, movie in the park, some great solution based conversations and ringing in the New Year with whistles and chants.

Once again some new life long friends who will  keep the movement alive in Tucson as we head back on the roads.   Thanks to everyone who made us feel so welcome and for all the shared stories.
