March 17th - ReOccupy



My friend Becky was there in NYC for Day One, back on Sept 17th. She's been bouncing back and forth between here and NYC ever since, though nowadays she's spending much more time in NYC than here.

She was there at the park last night, and I haven't heard from her since she sent me a text message saying:

"Zuccotti Park is ReOccupied!"


I think she may have been one of the score of occupiers arrested last night.

I hope that she is safe, and I hope to talk with her about her experience soon.




UPDATE: From Becky:

Jail Support for 7 hours last night- got back to the park just in time to see more of my friends (occufamily) brutally arrested. over 65 arrests- 5 hospitalized. I almost got hit with a barricade while trying to pick up my backpack. I'll be [...] doing jail support for the next 24 to 48 hours. Spring has Sprung! (Also the earlier half of the day was wonderful!)
