    There are a whole lot of progressive democrats in the Occupy Sandy Relief effort, who may not call themselves progressive democrats (YET!). When we support them now, they may join us later.

    They are serving people whose lives have just been shattered. When they recover from this storm disaster, we can't let them learn that government's slow response here means that government should be small enough to drown in a bathtub.

    Red Cross sends a truckload of blankets to Occupy Sandy – NYTimes

    Occupy Sandy Relief started their main hub in the Rockaways with a solar powered generator from Greenpeace.  Before long, the National Guard was relying on OccupySandy to distribute food and water.  The slow motion Red Cross sent a truckload of blankets on Thursday night, 10 full days after the storm. But hey, late is better than not at all.

    Occupy Sandy's direct action, with their motto of "Solidarity, Not Charity" and their ability to organize boots on the ground, is breaking down walls that have been used to divide us. This is community organizing. It is apolitical and non-religious. Greenpeace, NY National Guard, and the Red Cross are now supporting Occupy Sandy along with a long list of local organizations.
