This morning, one of our most steadfast readers commented that, yes, he would gladly join the occupation movement as soon as it came to the city nearest him, Philadephia, Pennsylvania. “When they come around to Philly, i’ll make the trip in and do my part!”
Good news: There is already an Occupy Philadelphia organization in place. They’re holding a meeting at the Arch Street United Methodist Church from 6:30 to 9:30 tonight.
That’s not the only occupation protest action in Pennsylvania. Over in Harrisburg, they’re holding a General Assembly meeting tomorrow evening from 7:00 to 10:00 at the Metropolitan Community Church, 2973 Jefferson Street.
Occupy Allentown took to the streets at the corner of 7th & Hamilton yesterday at high noon, and will reassemble there again 15 minutes from now, for a protest until 5:30 PM, when the group will go over to Bethlehem for a shared General Assembly meeting.
There will be another General Assembly meeting at about the same time held by Occupy Pittsburgh at the First Unitarian Church, 605 Morewood Avenue.
Occupy Scranton isn’t listed on the Occupy Together web site, but the group exists nonetheless. Another new organization is Occupy Wilkes-Barre, which is holding a protest at Wilkes-Barre Public Square, where Market Street and Main Street meet, from 4:30pm – 11:30pm tomorrow.
Occupy Pennsylvania – we are the 99 percent!
