One year ago, I was living at Freedom Plaza in Washingon,DC. I was a part of Occupy Washington DC. In February of 2012, our encampment was forcibly shut down. I know many of the people I lived with in D.C. and met at OWS, Occupy Boston and many other 'Occupies' are still out there fighting for the rights of all people. We (SearchingforOccupy) are going from Maine to D.C. to St. Louis to Wichita to Denver to San Diego to find the people who continue to work for peace, justice, the environment and humanity. Please watch for us, and let us know what's happening where you live. We'd love to visit you.
Searching for Occupy hits the road Jan.13th with Occupy Boston!

I arrived in East Texas September 29th, 2012. Drove into a small Eastern Texas Town, where the houses pushed back from the yards sprinkled with drought dried grass. I came to cover a story about some folks who built a wall against the KXL pipeline. A pipeline cutting a swath across the belly of the United States like some deep burnt scar. It's tube to be filled with Tar Sands Bitumen.
I learned about the Alberta Tar Sand where the bitumen was being shipped from years ago at a workshop at an enviromental conference called Powershift. Indigenous folks told stories of machines that dug up around their communities pressing the sand into some sort of high pressure goop that's pushed through the pipes like a super heated laser. Turning the top soil into a dead scar.
