Call Your Mayor: Complete List of Numbers for Occupied Cities

 On October 13, I started calling Mayor Bloomberg’s office to protest his threatened attack on Zuccotti Park, and urged others to do the same. Apparently they did, mostly without any urging from me, because the high volume of calls from around the country was credited, by the New York Times, with making the mayor back off. The next day, prompted by reports from occupiers, I used Facebook to tell people to call the mayor of San Diego. Then it occurred to me: We need a list of the phone numbers of the mayors of all the occupied cities.

When a movement has no leaders and no staff, the only way to get something done is to do it yourself – or, in my case, to get some friends and relatives to do it for me. Cryn Johannsen, who campaigns for student loan debt forgiveness, her husband Kevin Bobbett, and my sister Diane Alexander volunteered to assemble the list – not realizing that there were already 1400 occupied cities. It took them a week of slogging through the Internet, but here it is at last.

We can’t all sleep outdoors in tents, but we CAN all provide a sturdy “second line” of support. When you learn that an occupation is threatened, please use this list to find the mayor’s phone number and tell him or her how you feel about cities that crush their most courageous citizens!
