Occupy Wall Street Thanksgiving

Posted 20 hours ago on Nov. 23, 2011, 10:51 a.m. EST by OccupyWallStThanksgiving dinner picture

This Thanksgiving, Occupy Wall Street is celebrating unity and community with an open feast at Liberty Square. From 2 to 6 p.m. at Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park) we will meet to share food, stories and inspiration. All members of our global community are invited to break bread with us.

Indigenous voices, religious leaders, food justice activists and leaders from peoples’ movements around the world are speaking on Thursday at Liberty Square. Occupy Thanksgiving is a celebration for the entire New York community. All are invited.

There will also be a can food drive. Donations of cans will go to local food banks and pantries throughout NYC.”

I think I’ll go by with my dog, my camera and some cans of food before joining my family.


Stand up your eggs!


The text of the card:

“I know it’s not easy to be a woman but there are some advantages. Enjoy this day which you deserve! Many Happy returns March 8”

In countries that do give a damn, this day is celebrated.

In the old country, mothers, sisters, girlfriends would get flowers and cards and wishes. From men.

Here we get Stupak and Nelson. Endorsed by Obama.

and h/t to wonk the Vote at the Confluence – another special way Obama celebrates us

Save America’s Treasures: Obama Administration Cuts Hillary Clinton’s Historic Preservation Program

WTG, boyz!

Here, everyone gets them from me only:

Have a good March 8. And a brighter card

and a video with more cards

I like the way tabloids manage to squeeze a bit of news next to the  cheer for the occasion

usually depressing ones

although some of them manage to keep it entertaining

or at least stay in character

and now, as promised, Obamacards that even baffled B0bots

Indeed I cannot!

The weather, calendar and mythology all tell us: for the next 14 days – take it easy! There will be no storms so save your strength for times when the sun will shine brighter.

Last year I went into the legends

The myth accompanying this has everything in it – love, hubris, revenge, death and transformation.

This year I want to remind everyone there is a love story there. So, for the next 14 days

Peace and Love!
