Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence!

At Freedom Plaza to be continued

What an amazing action, this Occupy Freedom Plaza! Lots of youth are here. Lots of actions happening. Music and speakers on the stage. General Assemblies. Consensus building. Amazing giving voice to everyone who wants to be heard. Talking 'stacks', mike checks, megaphones and microphones.

Marches, sit-ins, closing down Chamber of Commerce, General Atomics, Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Lots of interacting with the public, both at the Plaza and around D.C.

Food not bombs has been feeding everyone. There's another "Occupy D.C." Wall Street action happening simultaneously at McPherson Plaza a few blocks away. We are trying to bring the anti-war message over to these 99% people, and include that message of money with our messages of protecting human and all life on the planet.

This plaza is raised up from the street about three or four steps, has a marble floor, and covers a very large city block. There are sections of grass along one side of the plaza and section in the middle back. Portapotties line the sidewalk at the west far end of the Plaza and at the east far end is the stage.
