From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
At the Occupy National Gathering's information desk, where someone might go to ask why a meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. had not yet started at 7, a sign read, "Whenever it starts is the right time."For additional humor, enjoy this sentence: "In a discussion lasting about two hours, Occupiers stood up to say women, minorities, American Indians, people with disabilities, gays and lesbians, homeless people, and anarchists were all being treated unfairly by the movement."
Among the roughly 200 protesters who gathered from Occupy sites nationwide, no one seemed bothered by the delay in the final meeting Wednesday, where they were to hear the completed vision list drafted in small groups that day. The protesters spent most of the holiday in Franklin Square debating items to include on the list, leaving them largely out of the sight of tourists traipsing Independence Mall.
Shortly after 7 p.m., Lauren Beller of Philadelphia, one of two protesters appointed to compile the final list, said that she had not yet started, but that she expected it would run about 70 handwritten pages.
About two hours later, organizers speculated the list might not be ready until Thursday morning.
However, on Sunday, Occupy did accomplish something in Philly: 26 of them were arrested.
Also that day, Midnight Blue Says visited Occupy National Gathering.
