This is an ongoing outreach activity organized back in November at the Occupy Berkeley camp and continuing in the months since the camp was dismantled. We meet to occupy public space, discuss political issues, and knit/crochet useful items like hats and scarves that we then send in solidarity to activists in the U.S. and worldwide.
Our most recent shipment went to Bradley Manning supporters in the UK (for distribution when the cold weather returns). Previous packages of knitted things went to Tahrir Square, to anti-nuclear protesters in Fukushima, to Occupy Newfoundland, to Occupy Wall Street in NYC, and to Greek anti-austerity protesters.
