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.

Time out for jail time. Direct action at Wells Fargo. 15 hours overnight jail time, a few winks of sleep.
Hours of meditation to pass the time
…went to the rich man’s house
Saturday Day 46
Weather 55 – 40
Marchers went to another location as diversion. Fourteen of us entered the bank at 4:00–as customers. Did a Mic-check, started our teach-in.
Held up our Foreclosure Notice!
Arrested at 6:00, taken to the Round House by 6:30 PM. Released at 9:30 this morning—so 17 hours, 15 in the cell. 36 hours virtually no sleep. Facilitated CoCo, got a SKYPE capapable mobile phone on long term loan. GA voted to ask legal to send the permit (application sent by Cigy) with amendment that they permit tents, food warmers, & no end date. Not a change they’ll accept. The pizza smells good. No money after paying for a pint of beer.
_________ got out in one piece. Held separate from the rest. We were worried.
Friday November 25, 2011 -- Arrest at Wells Fargo He loves you ... ...Kate tents moving in the night camp ashambles by morning assisted into the white van watch your head, the tile floors, concrete, pink painted bars -- world beyond our reach graffiti coin-scratched on cell walls twice I love you Kate sit on the floor chanting knowing their sins are ours -- unstoppable a new world awaits us, Kate! black coats, orange arm bands … the writing's on the wall
Later, there were sleep-ins outside the bank
We made street theater
…and after a being found guilty the first trial, a jury found us not guilty the second… on grounds of exposing an evil greater than the harm done by the sit-in/teach in.
