A delegation of dedicated Occupy Naples members are sacrificing a week away from school, work and family to convene at Occupy Congress in Washington, DC the week of January 17, 2012.
The group will represent the 99% of working class folks in Naples, Florida. We believe it is crucial for the youth and working class of Naples to be represented at this gathering. The gathering is not only an opportunity for us to network with other delegations of Occupy members around the country, but it is also an opportunity for us to carry the voice of the people to the very place where Congress makes decisions that affect the 99% of us.
We are 100% committed in keeping this movement non-violent as we continue to engage the philosophy of Gandhi's satyagraha.
Your support is appreciated in any form it may manifest; from letters to the editor, op ed, etc. We are in need of funding to make our trip possible. Our delegation is preparing to save their own money to pay bills in advance, purchasing winter clothing, gas money and other travel expenses. But we are in dire need of donations, whether in the form of tents, canned food, and money to help us cover what we cannot afford for the trip.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide. We humbly await your response.
