    Occupy Kingwood – A Sustainable Form Of The Occupy Movement (2012- 08-18) 35 Consecutive Weeks

     

    We had a wonderful 35th consecutive week of Occupy Kingwood, our weekly informational occupy.  We had a strong showing.

    We had a man in a pickup truck call us out. At first we thought he was being aggressive but to our chagrin he was actually extremely excited that we were out there. The man was a concrete worker that comes into the community to work and he feels that many in our community simply do not understand the plight of the middle class.

    I explained to him that I think many do but are simply willfully trying to ignore todays realities. It is easier to turn one’s head than to realize that they may be one or a few paychecks from exiting the middle class. You see, many have seen many in this community move from affluence to despair.
