    OWS Plans Vigil for Martin Luther King Jr., Zuccotti is Going Global, Organizers Say

    OWS Plans Vigil for Martin Luther King Jr., Zuccotti is Going Global, Organizers Say
    By Sam Levin Sat., Jan. 14 2012 at 4:25 PM

    ​You know how the cold has kind of made things difficult for Occupy Wall Street to keep things going here in New York City? That and all the evictions and stuff. Well, some of the organizers (generally, they don't like that word, but they are organizing this event!), are hoping to reinvigorate the local action tomorrow in an effort that is happening across the globe.

    In honor of Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday tomorrow, OWS will hold a candlelight vigil at Riverside Church in Morningside Heights. And they've got some star power behind the event, including a planned performance by Patti Smith and possible appearances of Russell Simmons and Yoko Ono (who, in absentia, launched a Zuccotti-specific art project today).

    The vigils will apparently take place all over the world (Check out this nifty map of where the events are being held -- and add your location if it's not on there!).
    http://map.squaresdatabase.org/

    In New York, folks will meet at St. John the Divine cathedral at 7 p.m. and begin a candlelight march to Riverside Church nearby. (Vigils across the world will take place at 7 p.m. in each time zone, as OWS notes with beautiful alliteration: from Cairo to California, New Orleans to Nova Scotia).

    Global losers.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Man, good thing Washington or the boys marching through Europe didn't have this attitude.

    How insignificant is your cause if you're only willing to fight for it when the temps are above 60? What a bunch of jagoffs.
    Be Not Afraid.

    It's an insult to Dr. King. They aren't celebrating anything he stood for.
    They are hijacking his day of remembrance just to piggyback off the publicity
    of his name and to take advantage of the holiday off work. Oh wait, scratch that
    last part, you have to have a job to be calling it a day off.

    It's a good time to remind these imbeciles that MLK was a Republican. :D

    Can't say I've heard a peep about it on the news today.
