HARRISONBURG, VA – Fifteen Harrisonburg, VA OccuPeeps gathered next to our brand new tiny tent encampment at 5PM for a singing “hootenanny” with four guitars and a collection of percussion.
Our favorites songs were “This Your Land is Your Land” and “Let it Fail” – set to the Beatles “Let It Be” -beseeching the country to cut Bank of America loose from bailout tethers.
OccuHistorian Michael Snell-Feikema provided a dynamic teach-in on May Day history we all realized yet again that this struggle is ages-old, relentless, and absolutely critical.
We marched around our city’s Court Square; attention focused on B of A’s badness with a rousing rendition of “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho”. In this version the bank’s walls come-a-tubmlin’ down!!
We are grateful and energized to have spent the past 6 months in the Shenandoah Valley engaged in this amazing movement.
Pro-people. Pro-local. Pro-peace.
