Dear MoveOn member,
Last week, a courageous group left the Occupy Wall Street camp in New York City and started marching to Washington, DC. Their goal was to bring the outrage and energy of the 99% directly to Capitol Hill. They're marching to call out the congressional Super Committee, which could cut a deal before Wednesday slashing Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to protect tax breaks for the 1%.

So we met up with the marchers yesterday and filmed a short video to help spread their story. It's critical that as many people as possible see this, as the Super Committee nears its critical deadline. Can you share it right now with your friends and family?
Watch the video
If enough of us share this video we can help the march get more attention, get more coverage in the media, and ultimately, put more pressure on Congress and the Super Committee.
After marching nearly 200 miles through the winter cold, they'll cross through Baltimore and prepare for their final push into Washington on Tuesday, just before the Super Comittee's deadline. Dozens of supporters have joined the march along the way. But it's up to all the rest of us to help share their story and make sure that by the time they get to Washington, Congressand the rest of the countryis expecting them.
uh, what the heck?
LOL! I was thinking the same thing. Can you say “road rage”? Hehe! May I suggest travelers in the DC Metro area stock up on a few dozen eggs? ;-)
Commuter carpool response:
I call BS on the entire thing.
On what roads will they travel? Nobody anywhere is allowed to walk on the Interstate system so marching down I95 is certainly out.
Nobody that I am aware of has actually seen any of this riffraff marching antwhere
These OWS punks “Want everything given to them for free.” Those GI’s who crossed the English Channel in 1944 were “Willing to die for freedom and to free others from tyrants.”
Throw the fairies in the army and send them to afganistan that will give them something to cry about
No problems. Any blood and bodily fluids will buff right out I use Meguair’s ;)
Should you be putting this message up on DU?
Why would any Freeper support the communist re-distribution of wealth?
I don’t think STD supports these folks. He’s merely informing us.
How does one march from NYC to DC?
Take the Appellation trail?
Given the traffic gridlock on the beltway much of the time, they will be walking faster than those of us in automobiles.
Their big target is to Occupy Congress soon. Shut it down, lay siege to it. (burn it down?) Their demand is for the GOP to bow down and pass Obama’s “jobs bill”.
OWS is nothing but Obama2012’s brownshirts
