As most know, in parts of Indiana and Alabama, tornados have wreaked havoc in the last 2 days. As of now the death toll is 28, with more to come as daylight hits. The entire town of Marysville IN, has been demolished. Henrysville IN, they say is unrecognizable.

The Occupy Movement has claimed to stand for the 99%. This is when you put your talents, blood , sweat and tears together and make a difference.

Every GA in every city and town needs to get together and build teams of occupiers and send them off to help.
All these folks affected by this dreadful string of storms are going to need help. They are going to need people helping to sort thru the rubble that was once thier homes. They are going to need clean clothing and a hot meal. They are going to need help from those with the tech saavy to sort thru the endless piles of paperwork for thier insurance and whatever aid will come to help. They will need someone's shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an ear to listen.

All the months of occupying and learning to cook for a group or set up a tent or making a pot of warm tea is what they need right now. There are those of you are are great at researching info. Find the towns that need the most help and organize . Call it a Direct Action, call it whatever you like , but do something.

This is when you as a movement comes out in force to lend a hand. To do what you have claimed this movement was all about. The 99%. Put your talents to work, show the country you arent what so many say. Put the movement into a postive light and help. Show the world what you are made of and make a difference.

Be the change you say you so desperately want.
