Occuponics Join Ash Wednesday Pilgrimage, 2-22-2012

The Occuponics were proud to join musicians in the Catholic Workers Band (AKA “The Filthy Rotten System”) who greeted marchers who made a 12-mile pilgrimage from the Footbridge to Ellis Island in Liberty State Park to the Elizabeth Detention Center for the third Consecutive Year on Ash Wednesday, 2012. This center – run by a private, profit-making company, is filled with immigrants who are threatened with deportation, and one of the songs performed at this event was Woody Guthrie’s “Deportee.”
