Because they’re very peaceful, you see, just like Martin Luther King, Jr. Well, except for the rapes, violence and rampant drug abuse.
Occupy Wall Street protesters have been fairly quiet since their rally in Duarte Square last month, but the group is planning a series of candlelight vigils on Sunday to celebrate Martin Luther King Day with the support of local politicians, Russell Simmons and a pair of 1960′s folk musicians.
Vigils will be held in New York in Bay Ridge, Staten Island and at Riverside Church in Manhattan. Organizers also promise affiliated candlelight vigils in Egypt, California, Canada and Australia. Occupy Wall Street has collected 277 signatures of those pledging to participate on a petition. Signatories include Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, writer Reza Aslan, country singer and “The Wire” actor Steve Earle, the rapper K’Naan, former NYCLU Director Norman Siegel and Councilmen Ydanis Rodriguez and Jumaane Williams.
Wow, 277 signatures from this “worldwide” movement? They can’t be stopped!
By the way, Brookfield Properties let these lowlifes back into Zuccotti Park last night with the caveat they can stay during the daytime so long as they don’t do anything stupid.
Meaning they’ll be getting the boot sometime today.
