Occupy the Highway to DC

Last week, a courageous group left the Occupy Wall Street camp in New York City and started marching to Washington, DC. View short video and send this info to as many friends of the Occupations as you can.
Last week, a courageous group left the Occupy Wall Street camp in New York City and started marching to Washington, DC. Their goal was to bring the outrage and energy of the 99% directly to Capitol Hill. They're marching to call out the congressional Super Committee, which could cut a deal before Wednesday slashing Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to protect tax breaks for the 1%.


The marchers' stories are powerful, and Congress needs to hear them before they slash programs that so many people rely on.


So we met up with the marchers yesterday and filmed a short video to help spread their story. It's critical that as many people as possible see this, as the Super Committee nears its critical deadline. Can you share it right now with your friends and family?

Moveon.org is a shameless front for the Democratic Party. Moveon was part of the co-opting of the anti-war movement in order to channel anti-war interest towards voting for Democrats. Moveon is trying to do the same thing with the Occupations. Beware!
