Lt. Dan Choi is on his way to Occupy Atlanta’s new encampment in front of AT&T headquarters right now. He’ll be in Atlanta for the next 3 days to celebrate the tent that Atlanta won for their outstanding local activism from Occupy Supply. Today also kicks off our FDL Membership drive. The annual contributions of our members pays for the salaries and benefits of our employees who do the organizational work, and that’s how we were able to use 100% of the money we raise through Occupy Supply to get supplies to occupiers who needed them.
