We the administrators of your friendly neighborhood Drinking Liberally - Athens were thinking the other day: "What do we think of the Occupy Movement?" (Full disclosure: We didn't all think this out loud at the same time or manifest psychic powers). We talked about it for a bit and we came to the same conclusion...
We like it.
There are protests like it in over 900 cities worldwide. Nine hundred cities worldwide.
Whether you call yourself liberal, conservative or the Rent Too Damn High guy we all agree with one thing: It certainly feels like the process and the power have been pulled out of our hands.
That is in the interest of everyone.
That is in short what the Occupy Movement is about.
If you cannot stand out with the group at the Arches, on Wall Street or where ever, what can you do?
Well there is still a lot. We feel like a lot of good can come from it.
Please join us at Little Kings this Thursday at 7. We're going to talk about where we might go from here. We need others who are interested in moving forward to join us. Not in some kind of crazy way. With civility & justice. We will succeed. It's just better if you are there.
All are welcome. Forward this invite. Spread the word. See you later
Drinking Liberally Athens on Occupy Wall Street at 7:00 tonight
