1. A Geodesic Dome!
2. A Library
The first time we dropped in to Occupy to have a look, we went into this little library, "the people's lovely library," and had a look. Inside were books that had been donated, materials to help people access social services, zines, and resources. There were children's books donated for families in the family zone and the volunteer running the library was very sweet to us and Aias. People were sitting and reading on couches in the back.
3. A Free Vegetarian Cafeteria
This blew our minds: a full functioning, outdoor vegetarian cafeteria. The food is free or by donation and it sure smelled delicious!
4. An Open Place to Share
I love this because it shows a little bit of organization in what people perceive to be a sea of chaos.
5. More Organization
6. The Red Tents
Red Tent is a national campaign to end homelessness initiated by Pivot Legal Society and allied organizations who believe the time to end homelessness is now. We'd never seen these tents before.
7. The Signs
I wish we had taken more pictures of the signs. Morgan took this one because he thought it was particularly funny, but maybe that's us just being snobs since we actually can't name a single Kardashian sister (who are they! what do they even do!).
