Well, we have some great diaries from our Occupy Supply liaisons around the country since our last Occupy the Blog diary on Wednesday.
First up is this great diary from djvjgrrl and Occupy Tacoma:
It’s been a busy few weeks at Occupy Tacoma. We can’t thank you enough for your second package filled with thermal underclothing, fleeces, jackets, hats and facemasks. The weather has been hovering in the 30?s all week, and so many occupiers have expressed their sincere gratitude for the extra warmth your donations provided them. (sorry for the lack of light in the video; it gets dark now around 4pm and I didn’t get the donations passed out quickly enough to catch the end of daylight).
And here’s the video she references:
Moistenedbink had this diary with a video from one of the local Providence TV stations where Occupy Supply is prominently featured in the background:
Local NBC affiliate WJAR channel 10 hit Occupy Providence to get some reaction to Time Magazine’s Person of the year pick. The Occupy Supply gear was in full view during the NBC interview. My contact gave me the heads up today.
CTuttle had a diary on Occupy Hilo’s activities around the port, complete with video as well:
This is also an Occupy Supply diary, so I shall tell ya’ll about what a Morale Booster it was when the Occupy Supply care package was finally delivered by me( I was atop Mauna Kea for the last two GA’s)…! I will be providing some pics of Occupy Hilo members sporting the Beanies and Scarves, when we finally Occupy Hilo this Saturday…! I’m personally spearheading the initial actual Occupy, and, we’re truly looking long term…! Even the 2.0 version, Occupy Foreclosure is being actively investigated…!
Cadogblog had this one about Occupy San Luis Obispo complete with video and pics:
Occupy S.L.O. is located in front of the San Luis Obispo County California Government Center. We currently have about seventy regular occupiers. Twenty of these are homeless people who have joined the movement, as well as about fifty regular drop – in members.
Currently there are marches on Thursday night and Saturday afternoon, and a Wednesday night seminar called Food Not Bombs. On Tuesday evening my contact member at Occupy San Luis Obispo distributed scarves, caps and blankets to occupiers (who send Firedoglake a warm and cozy THANK YOU!) at their location outside the County Government Center.
Richardgnista has this diary on the Occupy New Haven efforts with both a video and pictures.
Brian Sonenstein had a diary yesterday announcing the Occupy Supply Headquarters page. This page has links to the more recent diaries from Occupy Supply liaisons as well as links to the slideshow of pictures we’ve received, videos on Occupy Wall Street from around the web and the FDL Occupy Wall Street archives.
This link is to an FDL Activism Toolkit in case you want to write a diary for your local efforts (or just wish to write a diary at MyFDL for whatever topic you choose). Keep us informed as you fight the power!
