Notes From the Inside: How to Help
By Andrew Beale, reporter embedded with the 99%
Interested in getting involved in the movement? Here are some things you can do:
Bring supplies: Camp Coyote offers free food and blankets to the public, and therefore it can never have enough of either. Drop off chairs, medical supplies, reading material, whatever you’ve got.
Volunteer: The group needs trained medical professionals, people to man the information booths, people with cameras and film skills, and people to stay up at night and make their presence known on the sidewalk, as well as volunteers for many other jobs.
March: The occupiers frequently organize “actions,” which often involve marching together. Stop by Camp Coyote or check out the group’s Facebook pages for info on upcoming events.
Be there: The best way to show your support is to simply show up. Make your voice heard any time of day or participate in a general assembly meeting at 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12:30 p.m. Sundays.
