Update Occupy Boston 10-4, pics after large T'Storm early this morning...

Like the trenches of WWI


The first two I met about 6:30 this morning


Mud Cocoon


Rules for The Sacred Space


The Sacred Space unoccupied


The Sacred Space Occupied w/Meditator


Logistics Crew


Medic Tent


Sign Storage


Discussing the T'Storm from just an hour before


Occupier squeezing out blanket over Tea Roses


Nerve Center, w/Mail and Emergency Contacts as well as literature


Kitchen Tent, (donuts and coffee/tea, fruits were being served at this point)


Pissed off CitiCorp VP


Unhappycamper and our newest Vets for Peace member (she's an Iraq vet, Engineers), she's a Harvard student from WI


Sign on tent


Iraq Vets Against The War


All things considered, although wet, sloppy and chilly today; spirits were high. I didn't hear any complaints from either the people I spoke to and Boston PD officers around the encampment, (I saw only 4 officers and a Lt today). Some 20-30 pizzas were donated bu SEIU last night, delivered right to the encampment!.. :D

I gave them the latest news and how things were out here and how the local media is covering this, (poorly).

GO BOSTON and EVERYWHERE ELSE...Take back America! :woohoo:

4. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
I hope to be able to get in there on Friday; I'll send you a PM when I know for sure.

There was a decent report about the protests on the news tonight, first story on the NBC nightly news. Maybe they're finally taking it seriously (I hope).
