Kyle, a housing staffer with Occupy Chicago, said the group is receiving notice from Occupy supporters around the nation who need a place to stay next week through the end of the Summit.
National Nurses United is sending in 800 people in buses that theyre paying for, he said. So that right there is 800. We also have contacts with various occupations saying, Oh, hey, were sending up 100 people to you, were sending 50 people to you.
Kyle said Occupy Chicago is seeking space for 2,000 protestors, and says theyll even accept space donations from Republicans or political conservatives, just so the protestors can avoid sleeping in parks, and avoid being arrested by police.
Occupy Chicago volunteer Terrence Keenan said just about any space will do.
Back yards, or anything. People taking people into their houses, he said. Any commercial space that would be available for hundreds of people, any sort of warehouse space or anything for camping, because I understand the weathers gonna be rainy this weekend.
Wouldn’t it be easier for NATO to meet at a military base?
Lock ‘N Load time
Man, I’d hate to have the job of cleaning up those busses after that trip.
Mighty white of them.
