On October 28, 2011 at 9:15 pm, several hundred of the 99% plus Angela Davis marched from the Critical Refusals conference in West Philly, where she was the keynote speaker, to Occupy Philly base camp (aka City Hall). After a spontaneous march around City Hall, she addressed the crowd, which had grown to an estimated 1,000 people.

This video captures the ecstatic meet-up between those of us waiting at Occupy Philly with those who marched across town to join us, chanting, "This is what a flash mob looks like!" and "We are unstoppable! Another world is possible!"

Angela Davis speaks for about 10 minutes, using the people's mic because our amplification was not strong enough for the crowd. She quotes Audre Lorde, engaging the dialectics of our dynamic force complete with its internal contradictions, and she concludes with the world-echoing call from Oakland: "General Strike! Occupy Everywhere!"
