Milwaukee, WI – The Overpass Light Brigade has announced that they will have a special guest with them for their next bridge party and newest illuminated LED message. The Nuns on the Bus, a group of Catholic sisters who are traveling the Country by bus to call into question future legislation being considered by the U.S. Congress that they say, “…further enriches the wealthiest Americans at the expense of struggling, impoverished families.” (Nuns on the Bus website) will be joining up with OLB on a Wisconsin pedestrian bridge Tuesday, June 19th.
Occupy Riverwest will be live streaming this event through our Ustream account, which will be picked up by OccupyWI. If you can’t join the “holders of the light” and the Nuns on the Bus in person, than come and join the bridge party virtually. OLB has requested that anyone interested in participating in this once in a lifetime experience, send a message to their Facebook page with their email address so that they can send you the details. Hope you can join us in-person or virtually.
We have learned that the Nuns on the Bus will also be joining the striking Palermo’s Pizza workers on the picket line tomorrow at 10:45. Should be a fun couple of days!
