Taking Brooklyn Bridge is a poem about the struggle for liberty and the search for true democracy and redemption. Addressed to Walt Whitman and composed in the cadence and style of “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” the poem tells the story of the personal and political awakening experienced while participating in a march across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Zuccotti Park Press/ Occupied Media Pamphlet Series is founded to extend that spirit through the printed word and join in the advocacy of social change through public participation in debate, protest and direct democracy.

Produced by Adelante Alliance, a Brooklyn-based non-profit that serves the Spanish-speaking immigrant community, the goal of the new press is to produce accessible, affordable, pamphlet-size works by well-known and emerging voices who are inspired by a vision for a new society rooted in equality, democracy and freedom.
