|Occupy participants from around the country have converged on Philadelphia for the 'National Gathering' June 30 through July 4. Organizers estimate the event will draw around 1,500 protesters and has been independently endorsed by more than 100 Occupy groups across the country. From its very beginning, the convention was less about occupation and more about building communities. The group plans to develop a list of grievances to take to legislators, presidential candidates, and Supreme Court justices in Washington, and the event will culminate with a planned march to Independence Halls on July 4.|
