Leading poor people's organizer and Philadelphia Sheriff candidate Cheri Honakla spoke just before Dick Gregory at October 2011 Occupy D.C. at Freedom Plaza. october2011.org
Cheri spoke about the need to connect the growing movements to occupy financial districts and city halls with the fight of millions of families to occupy their homes.
Cheri called for help to elect her the People's Sheriff on November 8th in Philadelphia in order to stop home foreclosures.
"What I'm doing is not symbolic.", she said. "Its concrete and Bill and Aida and Glenn who's here with me today, like millions of people across this country are gonna lose their homes...unless you take this seriously and not just march about it, pray about it, and sing about it but help me fill every damn poll in Philadelphia where there's a birthplace of revolution and change...we can do this again in this country and take our country back!"
