“I’ve been fighting to keep this building for the community,” Blakely said. “But I’m an old lady. I had no man-power.”

So she said she went down to Zuccotti Park, home base for the Occupy Wall Street protests, and recruited activists.

“I saw all of these young children that had real skill and ability,” she said. “I said to them, ‘We’re done with all the massaging and intellectualizing. What’s next? If you really want to see what’s really going on, [follow me],'” she recalled telling the protesters at a General Assembly. “It’s time for action.”
