The story of the historic Occupy Wall Street Farmers March.
On December 4, 2011, farmers and activists from 
across the country joined the Occupy Wall Street 
Farmers March for "a celebration of community 
power to regain control over the most basic 
element to human well-being: food." The Farmers 
March began at La Plaza Cultural Community 
Gardens where urban and rural farmers addressed 
an excited crowd about the growing problems in 
our industrial food system and the promise 
offered by solutions based in organic, 
sustainable and community based food and 
agricultural production. This was followed by a 3 
mile march from the East Village to Zuccotti 
Park, the birthplace of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

We would like to thank Occupy Wall Street, the 
OWS food justice working group and all the 
farmers and citizens, urban and rural that participated in the day's events.
