#defendJodie: Canvass, Movie Night, Upcoming Phone Blast

Coming into week 4 of keeping Jodie Randolph in her Alameda home, despite the depredations of global capitalist giant Morgan Stanley.
Sunday, December 2, 8:00 a.m.

Yesterday, when the weekend's mostly relentless rain gave us a break, a bunch of home defenders went out to canvass Jodie's neighborhood.

We canvass so we can build awareness among neighbors, so we can recruit neighbors as allies, and to advertise movie night, this coming Thursday, December 6. We put a screen in Jodie's front driveway and make a homemade drive-in; fun for the whole family.

The movie will be Up. 1624 Foley Street is in Alameda.

Like our first neighborhood canvass a couple of weeks ago, this one was easy and successful--most people are sympathetic and interested, and more and more people know about us each time. One guy was perplexed:

"You're not asking for donations?"


"You're not doing this for money?"

"No. If you really want to give us money, we'll take it and use it for the home defense, but that's not what this is about."

He walked away scratching his head.

Also, our excellent press from the Oakland Tribune was picked up last week by the San Jose Mercury News! We especially appreciate the way the article is respectful of both Jodie and Occupy.

Coming up this week--new phone blast to Morgan Stanley. Details here soon.
