I Just Got an ‘STD’ from OWS

In case you missed it, Occupy Wall Street is meeting this week in Philadelphia. The event is being called a “NatGat” (National Gathering) and considering the brutal heatwave that has hit the East Coast, the OWS NatGat gets credit for an ambitious five-day schedule of speeches, training and activism.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that OWS’s Philadelphia “convention” was expecting 1,500 protesters from all across America to join the million or so tourists that typically visit the city for Independence Day festivities.

After reading about the events planned, I had to see it for myself. Sunday morning, I drove to Philadelphia and headed for Independence Mall.

Because the OWS crew was not permitted to camp out on the mall in front of Independence Hall, the early morning found an empty National Park. There was one small tent that was permitted to set up and operate as an information distribution point.
