Discuss. If enough people are into this idea, I have created a page for it on facebook entitled Occupy Wall Street: The March to Washington, D.C.
The march would be around 2-3 weeks long, marching between 10-12 hours a day at a pace of around 2mph. It is about 230 miles. It CAN be done.
Ages 18 and up, and only those in good health will be allowed to attend for insurance and legal reasons. We would occupy parks and public spaces along the way in which to sleep at night, as marching in the dark would not be safe. I would contact local restaurants and organizations in each place we would stop ahead of time to ask for donations of food and water and shelter, supplies, etc.
Let's show them we mean business.
