Power Shift Renews Energy Of Occupy Cleveland

With police arresting 11 Occupy Cleveland protesters Friday night in downtown Cleveland, 200 participants in the youth climate summit Midwest Power Shift marched to join the Occupy Cleveland group, renewing the energy of the 99 Percent Movement. “Power Shift showed us there are people out there who care about Occupy Cleveland and the Occupy movement,” Occupy Cleveland member Derrian Mitchell told the Cleveland News-Herald. “We’re two different movements coming together to stand up to big corporations and cronyism,” said Energy Action Coalition’s Whit Jones. On Sunday, members of Power Shift and Occupy joined forces again to protest the Keystone XL pipeline.
