This picture of me was taken at 11pm on October 10th on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in the financial district of Boston.
I was arrested for occupying with 140 other people that included, unions workers, religious leaders, veterans from Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, students from Boston University, UMass Boston, Northeastern, Berklee, Emerson, Harvard, MIT and Bunker Hill, unemployed and employed, and homeless. I'm still very active in occupy. Instead of civil disobedience, I want to organize a concert with Lupe to demonstrate solidarity to occupy through song.
I'm soon to graduate from Berklee College of Music and would love to have Lupe come to perform with us to empower one another. I would love it if his event managers got in touch with me! Email: Sgutierrez@berklee.edu Phone: 607-592-6523
In Boston, working class students are having to drop out of school. Students from disadvantaged communities are facing higher bills, transportation fare, and stagnant wages! Please come!
