After months of camping downtown Raleigh and presenting an eyesore to the whole community, Occupy Raleigh has reached the end of its run. No longer able to make the rent payments, the landlord informed the group that they would have to vacate Monday, May 7th.
The camp was a permanent presence for a number of months. As such, it acquired a significant amount of “stuff.” Stuff that had to be removed. And for THAT to happen, people had to show up to assist.
I’m curious about times to accomplish each of the daily tasks. I have finals on Friday the 4th and Monday the 7th and I work in the evenings. Other than that, I may be able to help out some during the day. I definitely want to be there for the 12th event. =)
Sorry that I can’t help today, Jim. My low back muscles are tweaked to the max.
Going to lay here and read Zinn today, and hope to be back on my feet soon to help out.
I can probably help with reseeding on the 12th but that’s about it.
I am tied up with work but perhaps at some point on Sunday I can help. There isn’t much I can do about that.
I’m on light duty due to my surgery last week. But, I’ll be there Sat after 1:00 to help sort or haul small items. I’ll bring some heavy duty contractor garbage bags.
When it’s time/clear enough please post this milestone… then I’ll try to come up with some plantings
I am laid up with my back after working on the Camp Wednesday. Looks like Tayloe and I are in the same boat!!!! I plan on being there on Sunday to do whatever I can as long as no lifting is invloved. What time do you plan on going on Sunday?
I feel awful I couldn’t be there to help today. I am at my sister’s for my mom’s birthday and working at the same time.
I am so sorry but I was so hoping I would feel well enought to be there today, but my back is worse and I seem to have a touch of what seems to be food poisining or a flu bug. I feel terrible for bailing on you all.
All of these people so engaged in the movement, yet when it comes time to sacrifice and work…..roaches in the sun. This might be why these people feel society has left them behind.
Because we have. I am only so willing to labor extra hard to carry the moochers and the looters.
