Gil Scott Heron said it best; we cannot rely on so called journalists in the Mainstream Media to share our stories. Fortunately we don’t have to rely on the Media, because blogging and social media have given the individual the power to create his/her own media. Blogging allows for the instant publication of your story according to you, and with social media you can spread that information to millions of people instantaneously. Tonight’s panel can help you do that. Sign up here.

With the coming of spring, volunteers from Occupy Philly and other community groups are descending on the vacant lots on Mercy Street in South Philly to begin growing free food on vacant city land.

I’m at Occupy Delaware (Wilmington) today to put up the command post tent that Occupy Philadelphia won in the Occupy Supply contest to reward excellence in community activism. Occupy Philadelphia is giving the tent to Occupy Delaware, who has invited occupiers that have been evicted to come live at their encampment.
Occupy Philadelphia will be livestreaming the event, which will be broadcast here (video above). Thanks to everyone for making this possible, and if you can’t make it down to Occupy Delaware, we hope you can join in virtually.

Amazingly enough, allowing the Occupiers some space to make their point, and not ordering up cop-inflicted violence against them, results in not only peaceful coexistence, but far less overtime for law enforcement personnel — which results in saving money!
