Occupiers being occupied

Occupy Wall St has a pledge page where people are encouraged to “fight back” and have a choice to pledge to do one of a number of things. Choices include starting an occupation, organize their workplace, got to a meeting, show up for an action. You get the idea.

Someone apparently tried to troll the OccupyWallSt.org site yesterday.

Occupy Wall Street has a national gathering that they are planning in Philadelphia this week. It is planned as a 5 day sleep in.

July 4th weekend is a very busy time in Philadelphia and the city will be prepared for a mass convergence on their amenities. Our “People’s Map” will direct people to restrooms, encampments, and banks for #banksleep.

For the occasion, they have a twitter hashtag, #natgat. Today, conservatives and others appear to have hijacked the hashtag and are having lots of fun posting.

A selection of the tweets can be seen at Twitchy here.
