A cadre of Occupy Wall Street marching from Washington, D.C., to Martin Luther King’s gravesite in Atlanta will reach Durham on Wednesday.
Members of Occupy Durham plan to join in the march as it approaches and departs from the city. They will welcome Walkupy with a potluck meal at 1 p.m. at CCB Plaza, renamed the “People’s Plaza” by Occupy Durham, and host an indoor sleepover at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, according to a press release.
From Durham, the group will head 13 miles down the road to Chapel Hill where it will take part in a Christmas Eve potluck and spend Christmas day.
The march started on Dec. 1 with 15 participants and will log 700 miles before reaching its destination.
