Donating to Occupy DC(AFSCME Council 26)

It was bright and sunny Wednesday when AFSCME Council 26s Carl Goldman (pictured at left) and Fern Finley stopped by Occupy DC to drop off 100 AFSCME rain slickers, but occupier Justin Rodriguez was happy to accept them. While Occupy DC continues to get donations, Rodriquez (pictured center) told Union City that theyve slowed down and that as the weather gets colder there is an increased need for tents, sleeping bags of all sizes, and winter jackets to keep the movement going. The rain slickers were Council 26s second donation, after giving 10 tarps to occupiers over the weekend. The problems federal workers are facing are part of this whole struggle, said Goldman. When banks and corporations dont pay their fair share of taxes it affects federal employees. Were also the 99%, he explained. Occupiers at McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza have set up websites where you can get more information on their needs and how to donate. - photo by Julia Kann
