What? 29.Mar.2003 18:05

Listen, now....

Don't turn this into a money thing. Really. I saw all the posts asking for camping supplies, blankets, all that, and I wondered why you didn't just plan ahead and bring some. But whatever. Now you're asking for money?? Come on. People are being beaten and arrested all over the city. We have other things going on besides the little camp-out....

Have you considered that some people don't have the things to bring. Things that you obviously take for granted by assuming the issue is lack of planning rather than lack of wealth. People are being arrested, but camping in front of city hall is also a valid and important way of voicing complaint. What better way than being in front of the mayor's office all day. She can't look out of her window without seeing them. . . Some people don't have a stash of money to live off of. If you don't agree don't give them money. Its pretty simple. Infighting about what's more important isn't solidarity neither is it productive. . . Let's appriciatet our varying ways of protesting. If we all say the same things in the same way we're no longer thinking for ourselves.

the fact is that we intend to do positive actions with the donations given such a sending condolances to families that have lost loved ones, reseeding the ground where grass has been killed, buying medicine and vitimans to keep ourselves healthy, and many other supplies to make our stand sustainable. Thank you again for all the support, we love you and your in our hearts. PPE

extra sleeping space 02.Apr.2003 12:16

First off I would like to thank all who have shown support, you have really helped us to carry on with our cause. If anybody out there has extra space they would be willing to offer to maybe let a person or two to sleep and shower for a night it would be greatly appreciated. Some of us at the camp don't have a home to go to for these needs, I personally have put myself into the position of being homeless so that I can be available 100% of the time to keep this camp going. It's simply a request because I want to keep the people out there healthy and spirits high, so give me a ring anytime in regards to this. I'd like to mention again that anyone who would like to stop by and help us with our show of presence we'd love it. Thanx again everybody out there...much love PPE
