The Occupy National Gathering is almost here — just in time for a brutal heat wave.
From June 30th to July 4th, Occupy activists from around the country will meet at Philadelphia’s Independence Mall for a week of activism and movement building, culminating in a 99 mile march from Philadelphia to Wall Street!
#NatGat organizers anticipate thousands to attend, camp out and engage in sleepful protests on city sidewalks. But with the National Weather Service advising people to “wear light clothing whenever possible and drink plenty of water,” Occupy Supply has sprung into action, donating lightweight, union-made National Gathering t-shirts (the proceeds for which directly support the event).
Now we need your help to send some of our new BPA-free collapsible water bottles to help Occupiers stay hyrdated, too. Can you help us support Occupy National Gathering with donations of BPA-free, collapsible water bottles?
– OR! –
These water bottles are perfect for staying hydrated on the go. Made from BPA-free plastic, they actually fold up into a small packet that you can clip to your belt, backpack or wherever you like via a sturdy carabiner.
We’re also beginning to ship our new summer line of supplies to help Occupiers continue to exercise their first amendment rights. Our revamped online store now even has a special section to give Occupiers access to discounts, special items, store credit and more.
Finally, if you’re in the area between June 30th and July 4th, we encourage you to come down and check out the National Gathering. Firedoglake/Occupy Supply staff Kevin Gosztola, John Washington and I will be there distributing supplies and information, as well as meeting with Occupiers to see how we can be of assistance, and they are eager to meet you there.
Help Occupy Supply send collapsible, BPA-free water bottles to the National Gathering.

Contrary to what you’ll read in the press, Occupy is not dead, as evident in major actions and events from May Day to the Occupy National Gathering. With your help, Occupy Supply can and will continue to be there for the Occupy movement.
