Twain/Occupy: Reports of their Deaths Exaggerated

Abby Zimet

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.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
