For those who would never consider camping in a tent with a group of strangers, there are other options and ways to support Occupy Auckland.
In fact a huge number of people have been adding their help and support to the camp in numerous ways. financial donations and koha are just one way to contribute but contributing your time is just as valued.
One special person does the kitchen laundry. another brings food or bread and vegetables galore? Does anyone know what to do with 20kg of dried egg powder and only barbq's please reply!
Postering and turning up to listen to speakers or participate in workshops is great. holding billboards and placards is helpful. Washing up always appreciated but even better get out in the community and tell some friends. We are working on getting small fliers and reaching as many people as possible.
In the meantime my vege garden has become a little overgrown and I really needed to remove many of the weeds and clear a way for the new seedlings. Coming up are tiny spring onions , which could quite easily be mistaken for grass. also up is my sweet corn, also looks like grass or worse twitch.
I am hoping to return back to Occupy with some environmental features from home. The first thing I will take in the car will be two container gardens with tomato plants. Yes really tomato plants.
Join the movement, the revolution or the Occupation. No matter what you call it I believe the world is globally reaching out, and as the 99%% we are being heard
