Last Wednesday, 21 protesters left Zuccotti Park, the center of the New York protests for Occupy Wall Street, and set off down the highway — on foot. The protest pilgrimage hopes to arrive in Washington on Nov. 23, the day Congress will vote on extending Bush-era tax cuts. Elizabeth Flock joined the group in Elizabeth, N.J. She’s been with them as they battled fatigue and injuries, rumbled with Princeton students, enjoyed the largess of supporters along the route and attempted to articulate why they walk in protest. Follow this post as the group makes its way south. Here’s the view from the highway:
