I will be posting these for each of the 55 days of Occupy Philly on Dilworth Plaza, from October 6, 2011 to November 30, the night of our eviction.

Wednesday Day 36
Weather 72 – 43
11:00 AM Shooting a documentary on Passyunk. On what? Filled the parking lot—vans, buses—specially outfitted vehicles—this is a big budget documentary… was gonna say, ‘Occupation’ … and it almost is.
Bench in the sun. A breather—then back to work.
Two hours of Peeps mic last night… taking a fac. night off.
Direct Action meeting—well facilitated. Asks to send reps to CoCo
Point People = bottom liners
CoCo – if only those with proposals go—there’s no neutral balance, no one concerned with process and not their own agenda.
Where have the drummers gone? When did they abandon us?
In their absence I feel the end draw near.
Thursday Day 36
Weather 62 – 45
A good breakfast. Work an hour on the inter-Oc thing—will work the rest of the afternoon.
Major fuss at CoCo – _______ from Direct Action threw a little tantrum—hijacked the meeting & took up the whole GA—at the meeting house (rain) full moon? The inter-Occupy plans are takng shape. OWS sending a march, 20 miles a day—to D.C. Be in Philly Saturday—can meet – hope with peeps from local meetings—then set Dec 10 for an all day conference. it’s happening. This—from the notice I sent out on Oct. 4. [a shame it was such a bust—like a corporate run employee meeting, complete with Power Point.]
