Coleen Rowley~Jobs Not War

Another reason why we OCCUPY! Yesterday at Occupy Minnesota I ran into Coleen Rowley, former FBI agent/September 11, 2001 whistleblower/peace activist, she told me why she came to Occupy.

I also ran into this guy (who declined to give his name)…

He said he came down because he had the day off and he was bored. I asked him if he had any other reason, he replied that we were wasting tax payer money and that everyone else in the country thinks that Occupy is a joke. And my most favorite line…everyone down here needs to GET A JOB. Well my friend as your sign says, “free speech for all” and I plan to continue speaking up and Occupying…for YOU and the rest of the 99%. I hope I see you down there again and maybe you won’t carry the “douche bag” sign next time. Or maybe you will and it will make it easier for me to find you.

Love. Peace. Roccupy!
