We want all the great posts being shared on facebook to be posted here…. Would you like to be a contributor??? Go to the forums and look for ‘We Need News Contributors!!!’ and find out how to join the online staff here at OCCUPY Wilmington NC.
We planned it in less than two weeks… We did not get to promote as much as we wanted… BUT we deemed it as a success for our first event in over a year. We had a total of 11 people show up or stop and join us. Had as much as 9 people standing with us. We had 5 regular OCCUPY Wilmington NC peeps in attendance… Ron, James. Brad, Aliaka and myself (Star)… Two young UNCW OCCUPYers found us by looking at the website calendar and rushing down to join us… The other 4 OCCUPYers were plucked off the street to join us. We had no press join us, but then we had already decided that we wouldn’t call them and if they showed up we wouldn’t talk to them. We were greeted nicely by the Wilmington Police. and we had several Lawyers, a few officers and more walkers who welcomed us back to our protest corner at City Hall. They had not forgot us. We will be planning some more City Hall protests at our next GA. We are thinking that we should come stand at our corner once a month as we remind Wilmington that the OCCUPY movement is not gone and we will continue to fight for the 99%.
