The day started with me checking into the Occupy Wall Street live stream while I waited for my nephew johnny and his girlfriend Chrissy to arrive so we could PATCO it over to the Chinatown bus and get our May Day on. Chinatown bus doesn’t accept credit cards and since we were all buying the tickets on one credit card and hadn’t brought enough cash we went around the corner to Greyhound and bought one way tickets to NYC.
"Banks get bailed out, schools get sold out!" Though Occupy Philly had been active during the winter, today's May Day event to shut down Wells Fargo felt like the spring rebirth of the movement. The actions drew attention to the many negative impacts the bank has had on our city.
