Revitalizing #OccupyVancouver

Chris Corrigan

In Oakland, an awful lot of sick days were taken last week in support of the movement. I was down at Occupy Vancouver today with my daughter. We stopped by in the morning when things were quiet, chatting with some of the security people. It’s getting cold and stressful down there.
