Occupy Wall Street Builds Momentum for Spring Resurgence: Launches 5-Week Bus Trip

NEW YORK -
Early Wednesday morning, nearly two dozen occupiers boarded a 24 seat conversion bus in Brooklyn.  For the next five weeks, members of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) from New York City will be touring the Northeast to connect with other occupations.
 
“Interoccupy communications and face to face community building is a key step in growing solidarity in a global movement,” says Austin Guest, member of the OWS Direct Action group. At each stop along the trip, occupiers will share skills and knowledge with each other. By building relationships between occupations, occupiers are setting the stage for nationally coordinated actions.
 
The Occutrip will touch base in 16 northeastern cities including Providence, Boston, Albany, Buffalo, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and Newark. Overall, 80 members of OWS are expected to participate.
