Notes from the Underground
Last night Crooks and Liars readers sent pizza to Occupy Tacoma. We had about 20 pizzas. That was incredibly cool.
I was thinking if Democrats wanted to do outreach to the occupations, this might be a good way to start. It's been raining like crazy at Occupation Park, in Tacoma, Washington with brief sun breaks.
Our community has been very supportive. Including the men and women in blue. We have had a large nightly crowd as the homeless stop for a bowl of soup donated by kindhearted souls in our community. People drop by to leave tents and sleeping bags, tarps and coffee. One night a wedding party dropped off the extra food from their reception. Tacoma is a blue collar town. Our unions have come down to stand with us. Our churches. Other occupations have sent people. Oakland. Seattle. We have left politics out of it. We are all in this thing together.
Here's the pizzeria across the street from our campsite. We are on Pacific Standard time. After 6 is when we start to get cold and hungry. If you are so inclined, lend a hand and tell them where it came from. The pizza people will write that on the box. http://harmonbrewingco.com/brewery_menus.h...
If you can't afford to send a pizza, send your good vibes. Those will also keep us warm!
The DUers at Occupy Tacoma send our warmest regards to all!
