I plan this July to fly out to Los Angeles and begin a long trek. the trek will be to broaden the cause of Occupys movement and to show the government the true scale of what they are against. I am going to walk cross country, starting in Los Angeles and end up in Washington D.C. I know the journey will be long and hard. And there will be many obstacles but I think the cause is just and worthy. Anyone who wants to join me on the way is welcome. And any support both morally and otherwise would be appreciated. OCCUPY!

You might contact these guys. A group of about 8 Occupiers left San Diego a month ago and are in Arizona headed to Washington DC . Here is the website:

They need our support along the way, so please contribute on their website, bring sandwiches and water on the route, or have them stay over night. You can follow their progress and current location here:

Left Kingman and began walking towards Flagstaff on Route 66. They are raising awareness every day. Help them out. Even to just say hi.

Not yet. I was hoping to find someway to market it and get support from other occupiers. I wanna film the journey as much as possible. but being that I have very limited resources Ill have to make do with what i can put together. Im hoping for help with food and water and maybe shelter along the way from supporters of the cause. So any help and support anyone can offer its welcome. Its a long walk so your support is welcome in all forms. Much love to all my fellow occupiers and supporters of our worthy cause.

I pray that you are going with some support and not alone. I pray that you will find others to join with you. Be safe.

That's awesome! Good luck out there. Are you going to post updates on a website, blog, etc.? And have you done any media outreach about this?
