For those who maintain the occupation at night and all day: “They also serve who only stand and wait.” ~ John Milton (1608 – 1674) from Sonnet XIX.

“We are the 99%” March
November 17, 2011 04:00PM to 06:00PMHosted by Michael Beck
Beginning At Market Square Park –Ending at I-45 over White Oak Bayou
17 Nov , 04:00 PM We’re starting to get the 1% to pay attention. But this system’s still rigged against us: Wall Street is still making billions and taking our homes, and Congress can’t pass a jobs bill. To amplify the economic emergency, we’re making Thursday, November 17, a massive day of action to show “We Are The 99%. In big cities, suburbs, and small towns, we’re declaring an economic emergency at the very places that can put America back to work: our crumbling bridges, understaffed schools, and other sites that represent a failed economy. Just days before the Super Committee’s deadline to propose more cuts for the 99% or increased taxes for the 1%, we’ll show Congress and the media that we want an economy for the 99% of us. Come out and amplify your voice and help increase the pressure on Congress to tax Wall Street to create millions of jobs. .
