I am 46 years old and have never seen or believed I would ever see this kind of protest against the financial district. These young people are awesome. We need to support them anyway possible.
The police have barricaded the NY stock exchange and the immediate areas around it. I image it is finally starting to sink in that the American people are joining the revolution. Slowly but surely. Despite media black conditions no less.

Where to Order Food to Help the Occupation
Published 2011-09-13 03:27:57 UTC by chris
Several people have asked: if I can't make it to New York City for the occupation, but still want to help, what can I do?
One of many answers is to support those who are at the occupation on Wall Street by calling various delivery places in the area and having food sent to the site. Not only will you be providing food to hungry people, you will also be supporting local establishments as opposed to corporate chains. A list has been compiled of several pizzerias, health food places, and delis around the occupation area from which you can call and order food. The list can be found at here.
Finally, for those who ARE able to make it to the occupation, there will be food available that we will have bought through your generous donations. However, we'd also like to ask that people bring a little bit of food themselves, enough that can theoretically be shared with at least three people. Not only will it help us hold out for longer, it will go a long way in helping you get to know each other a little better as well.
