My guest-blogging stint at Feministe ends tomorrow and I’ve been a terrible blogger. I hope you will forgive me for not posting more.
In the meantime, I wanted to share news of a non-violent civil disobedience disability rights group, ADAPT, that is taking DC by storm. 600 ADAPTers are in DC fighting for affordable, accessible housing. At 4:30 am this morning they set up a tent city (named DUH City– HUD backwards) outside of the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). They spent the day talking to HUD officials, protesting at McCain’s headquarters (11 arrests, I believe), and being escorted by the police to the Democratic National Headquarters to deliver information. Our feminist friends over at FRIDA are with them.
The action will go on through out this week. You can follow them on twitter (via cell phone or the web), visit the website DuhCity, or get updates from me at my blog (they’re hosting a blog media swarm where 40+ bloggers will be posting updates from ADAPT).
FREE OUR PEOPLE!!
love to you all,
