The Disability Caucus did not hold a regular meeting. Instead, we were extremely proud to participate in the May Day rally at Union Square. We began to assemble at 3:30 in front of the statue of Gandhi in the southwest part of the park. By 4 PM there were about 20 disabled 99%ers including, Philip Bennett, Nadina LaSpina, Danny Robert, Alejandra Ospina, Owen, and quite a few others. We listened with great excitement, to the rally speakers and sang along with Tom Morello on (This Land is Your Land). As the crowd grew thicker and thicker, we realized that those of us in wheelchairs were stuck in our little enclave. Many OWSers greeted us as did union members and others. Some of us joined the march.
