Skip to comments.A Look at Occupy Wall Street's Supply Room
Posted on 10/16/2011 4:00:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
From the outside looking in, Occupy Wall Street's headquarters at Zuccotti Park may look like a clutter of tents and sleeping bags. But just a few blocks away, the so-called Trojan Horse of this well-organized movement is in plain sight.
That's where the Occupy Wall Street supply room is located, a stockpile of food, clothing, and medical supplies housed in a former bank on the corner of Broadway and Exchange.
"We get anywhere from 100 to 400 boxes a day," protester Saum Eskandandi told NBC New York as he led a tour of the supply room. "People have been sending us so much support, it's overwhelming."
The goods are donated from all over the world and sent to a P.O. box the group set up at a local UPS store. Even the warehouse space itself was free of charge, donated by the building.
In assembly-line fashion, protesters organize everything from clothes to canned food as they come in. So far, $230,000 has also been donated and currently fill the organization's bank account.
"Only a small portion of that money has been used, and only if everyone at the park agrees," said Eskandandi. "Really, the physical donations of goods mean more than a growing bank account."
Once shipments are organized, the contents are loaded into bins and wheeled to the park....

If they have so much support, they can provide their own porta potties.
How is this going to end?
I am going to send some dog crap and see if they stockpile it.
And George Soros denies and involvement even after bankrolling Media Matters and Move On.
I demand ideological purity!
Only electricity from solar and wind sources may be used!
Will the rent-a-mob-sters be paying taxes on the protest money they’ve been given?
Will the quacks who are operating the “clinic” for those claiming sick leave be investigated?
So they trust that the stuff they’re getting is ok??!! What if it’s laced with rat poison?? Is anyone checking?
Who pays for delivery? Trash pickup?
Do they brush their teeth? Wash? Where?
Do they have lice or other critters, yet?
Are there problems with rats?
This is the 0bamaville future. Voluntarily FEMA’d. Internment as a way of being. Wow.
Sounds like Suicide by revolution.
Indeed - I’d like to see who owns the building housing this “free” warehouse and how they came to donate it. I’ll bet my next paycheck it’s an Obama donor and they got a phone call from “someone” connected to the Dems asking them to take care of it.
It is starting to happen. These people will do exactly what they are protesting against. They are hippocrites. They will lie, cheat, and steal from one another until they turn against themselves. They are getting too large without any organization or delegation. It should turn into chaos.
At least now we know where some of that money that Solyndra “lost” over the last 2 years went.
Let us hope.
ROFLMFAO!! Is it laced with rat poison? I guess by the time you find out one of them are dead from it, they will already be rotting with the other garbage piled up!
Hopefully with nightsticks and water cannons.
They must have organized as a 501c3 or 4. I’d like to see when they filed, and who makes up their board.
Dude! Brownies... kinda dank but wth? what?
its acorn and obamas advisor Gaspard..the communist that started this.
I believe it’s a union warehouse.
In Atlanta, it’s been their undoing.
They have to agree by consensus to do anything. If they can’t agree, then they have to move back to the original agenda.
When Rep. John Lewis came to see them last week, he wanted to speak to them.
Someone spoke up and said that Lewis shouldn’t speak, because he is no better than anyone else.
They voted. They couldn’t agree.
Another person spoke up and said Lewis should speak, not because he is better than anyone else, but because he has something important to say.
They voted again. They still couldn’t agree. They again wouldn’t let him speak.
Since then, the group is receiving very little support in the Democratically controlled city of Atlanta. If you disrespect Lewis, you don’t get anywhere.
The mayor of Atlanta has given them until tomorrow to move along.
