Occupy Raleigh’s Natte Greene

It was a trip down memory lane today as we landed in Raleigh after nearly a year since being here last.  We parked in the same spot, but this time there were no tents to adorn the backdrop.  We reminisced about the camp, the people, and how occupy started in Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham.  Mike gave us his rendition on Occupy Wall St. as he was one of the initial members who occupied from the start and was there during the Brooklyn arrests.   (more…)

We arrived in Raleigh, NC last night and once again met with the sweetest people.

Occupy camps are filled with the BEST! We want to give a BIG shout out & thanks for all of you across the Country who are putting up with the weather and police to uphold the OCCUPY movement for those who cannot or choose not to be outside. Your commitment to the CAUSE is one of true dedication and we wouldn’t be here without you! You make us all proud and we love you.

Last night we were honored to have lots of Occupy Raleigh’s finest, who came and went as the night went on.  Just before winding down Jeremy Gilchrist broke out the guitar and played us his (now famous since playing on BBC) song called “we are the 99%”.  We will post a link to his site as well as post the video from last night.   Thanks for making us so welcome in this great (albeit Conservative) city!
