From coast to coast to coast in Canada, the US and around the globe groups of folks from all walks of life turned out to join in this huge 'flash mob' type solidarity protest that was organized on facebook in just 72 hours. Check out the site today and see the pictures read through the texts, it's truly inspiring. As the site points out, it's only the beginning.
The concept of Casserole Nights has caught the imagination of folks and will continue to spread like wildfire in the upcoming weeks. Perhaps the new name of "Occupy" will become "Casserole" as more and more people from all walks of life decide to pick up their "percussion crockery" and take it to the streets.
