Watch! Go there if you are close! Some people say the police seem to be putting them in barricades.

Two celebrations on this wonderful, St. Patrick’s Day 2012: St. Patrick banished the snakes from Ireland! And, Occupy Wall Street tries to banish the corporations from our government! If he can do it, we can do it!

It is hoped that people from far and wide will gather in NYC to celebrate the 6 month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. Hope some folks from Long Island can make the trip in for the big occasion.

Parents for Occupy Wall Street – #M17 Call to Action: The Children´s Chalkupation
Liberty Plaza / Zuccotti

Thursday March 8th, around 11pm, 3 occupiers were arrested and detained for over 20 hours for the heinous acts of criminal trespass, trespass and graffiti. What specifically was their criminal activity? – 2 were arrested for drawing on the ground with sidewalk chalk, the 3rd for watching them! This latest example of the NYPD subjecting outrageous oppression on peaceful OWS protestors, and suppression of first amendment free speech in a 24 hour public park is disgusting, petty and a blatant waste of time and police resources. Immediately following the arrests @OWSTactical called for a ‘Chalkupation’ to show solidarity with the arrested. On Saturday March 17 at 11 am, Parents for Occupy Wall St. and their children call for all of New York’s children and parents to join to take colored sticks of calcium carbonate in their hands and defiantly ‘Chalkupy’ Liberty Plaza for the right to play freely in public space! We plan to cover the park with vibrant chalks of 99% Super Heroes, OWS Kids Characters, and 1% Meanies. Facebook event
