54 Day Long March, Walkupy, Pays a Visit to Occupy Chapel Hill and Carrboro
Occupy Chapel Hill/Carrboro continues alongside other Occupy movements all over the world as they evolve and transform. The group will welcome another creative occupy movement to the Town, Walkupy, as they pay the Town a visit on 12/23/2011. The Walkupy movement is a 54-day march which started in Washington, DC and will end in Atlanta, GA at the gravesite of Martin Luther King, Jr.. The march commenced on December 1st, at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, commemorating the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. The march will be visiting Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Greensboro, Winston Salem and Charlotte while passing through North Carolina.
Occupy Wall Street has spawned many creative occupy movements all over the world and Walkupy is a clear example of the diversity of approaches. While in Town, Occupy Chapel Hill/Carrboro members and supporters will be marching along their route as they come into Chapel Hill. While at Peace and Justice Plaza, the group will also hold a teach-in and a potluck, which is open to the public.
