and thank you for all you are doing. The movement has been brilliant so far - the leaderless style is exactly what was needed. You'll find that on a website such as this you will probably not get much traction during election time in the big forums like General Discussion or Politics. To many of the members politics=elections.

Some of us older folks though understand exactly what you are doing and are applauding (and sending donations when we can) from the sidelines. We are in a hard place right now in this country. Sometimes it seems that the most we can do is hold on tight and not lose the labor gains we have made. But even that is slipping away now as we see the unions decimated.

Personally I read overseas papers to find out what is going on here - along with internet news that I can find. I do check out the NY Occupy updates as well. If you have any updates on May 1st I will personally see that folks know about them - both here in the Socialist Progressive group and on other leftist sites. Solidarity my friend.

It seems like "Crickets" here...but the people who founded this site are probably busy... KoKo Mar 2012 #1
