Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco, opposite the Ferry Building

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘We need

– Affordable Housing

– Rent Stabilization

– No More Slum Lords

– Liveable Wage (30 hours a week)’

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘END CORPORATE PERSONHOOD’

 

‘WAKE UP!’

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘TERMINATE GLOBAL DOMINATION’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘WE ARE THE HOPE TO DEFEAT THIS MIND-BLOWING DISEASE’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘TODAY’S HAPPENINGS’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michael is manning the food distribution tent today. He works in the food industry and has a catering job. He said he felt it was his duty to be here to support a world-wide movement. ‘If not now when?’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOVE IS POWER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Basic First Aid Tent

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Aid tent is staffed by members of the California Nurses Association. Pilar is a representative of the Association.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pat is a volunteer nurse. She said: ‘As a nurse I have a really good picture of what the community looks like. And I’ve been seeing people putting off health care because they can’t afford it. As a nurse it is just not tolerable to me.’

Pat traveled around India many years ago. Her brother-in-law was on a Fulbright at the University of Roorkee and she went to visit him.

Now she is outraged by the bank bailout. ‘No bankers have gone to jail and people are underwater. I need to see some bankers in jail. Even the Rockefellers knew that they had to take care of their workers. These people (the bankers) take everything and give nothing.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erin is also a nurse and she wants to get the word out about the International Day of Action on Nov 3, when the leaders of the G-20 nations meet in France. The brochure she is holding says:

International Day od Action:

Occupy G-20

Thursday Nov 3, 2011

MAKE WALL STREET PAY

San Francisco – USA Action

‘As leaders of the G-20 nations meet in France, join with nurses, labor, students, and community activists and be part of the global actions. Demand Wall Street pay for the devastation they’ve caused to our communities.’

 

 

 

 

Raina has been living in this tent for weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They were singing ‘Imagine’…
