Occupy Philadelphia Day 44

Yesterday was an international day of action by various groups working for justice. In Philadelphia several groups joined together to march, demonstrate, and risk arrest. About two dozen protesters were arrested on the 30th & Market Street bridge. This bridge was targeted because it is on the list of structurally deficient bridges. We have plenty of money for wars and to bail out banks, but no money to fix our crumbling infrastructure. Meanwhile OccupyPhiladelphia tried to prempt eviciton by the city by attempting to move accross the street to the Municipal Services building. However, the police prevented the move. Mayor Nutter told OP to just follow proper procedures, whatever they are. Too bad OP just doesn't ignore Nutter. Occupation is not about following the instructions of those who are responsible for the problems we're protesting.
