About The show and Occupy Movement...
The money from the door will go to buying sleeping pads, coats, blankets and flowers for wall st. This event (like OWS) has no political affiliations. It is simply a way to bring the community together in celebration and support of those putting their lives on the line to remind the goverment that its job is to execute the will of the PEOPLE, not CORPORATIONS!
