Tent Monsters in Melbourne

Damn, Aussies!  We have to top this:

By the way, Conflucian Marsha found an article at WaPo that tends to confirm the January 17, 2012 Occupy Congress event:

In the two weeks since the New York Police Department cleared New York’s Zuccotti Park of its camping protesters, the Occupy Wall Street movement has increasingly turned its attention to Washington. Last week, some 50 marchers arrived at McPherson Square from New York and then marched on the Capitol. Yesterday, Occupy DC targeted congressional Democrats at a campaign fundraiser. Now, protesters say they plan to Occupy Congress on Jan. 17, in the “largest Occupy protest ever!

(Facebook)The protest is being timed with the start of the 2012 legislative session for Congress. Protesters say they hope to set up 1 million tents in front of the Capitol. “We’re taking the movement straight to their doorstep,” the protest’s Facebook page wrote.

For those of you who missed this video announcement from the New York City General Assembly (nycga.net) last night, here it is:

Wanna go to the Mall?  Be sure to bring your tent monster.

Hmmmm…

PS: OWS is looking for housing accommodations for occupiers.  If you have space and want to help, contact ows.housing@gmail.com.

Also, OWS would like to help St. Paul’s and St. Andrew’s church pay their heating bills.  This church has been hosting dozens of occupiers a night since OWS was evicted from Zuccotti Park and the heating bill is about $300/night.  See this page for more details.
