Midwest Power Shift didn't waste any time taking action this weekend: as soon as keynotes wrapped up on our first night, folks hit the streets and rolled hundreds deep to #OccupyCleveland. At 10pm on Friday night, #OccupyCleveland's permit to occupy public square was set to expire, and a number of folks had planned to risk arrest in order to remain on the square. Hundreds of Midwest Power Shift participants arrived shortly before 10pm: bringing the noise, the passion, and the power that this conference is loaded with, and standing in solidarity with occupiers as police made arrests. Check out the video and see how incredible our night was!
