An uplifting look at Occupy Pittsburgh, a city rich in labor history, where protesters are fighting an eviction, planning ongoing actions, and above all energizing longtime progressive groups to offer "a glimpse of what the movement will ultimately bring us." The same sense of enduring legacy is cited elsewhere, from New York - where clergy joined occupiers - to Wisconsin - where over 1,000 gathered to sing and thus defy Walker - to California, where Mill Valley Seniors for Peace, having held a nine-year vigil,  serenaded Madison peace activists' 30-year vigil. God love 'em.
