If you are interested in the 99% Movement, please take a gander.
If you are in the Bay Area, this post is sent directly to you.
Tomorrow: ” By a vote of 1,484 to 46, the General Assembly of Occupy Oakland voted last week to call a citywide general strike for Wednesday.” (CNN coverage)
“[W]e invite all students to walk out of school. Instead of workers going to work and students going to school, the people will converge on downtown Oakland to shut down the city,” the group’s manifesto read. “We liberate Oakland and shut down the 1%.”
One of the marches begins at 12 noon. If you are linked in to the Facebook community, here is a invite about the Artist and Musician’s pre-gathering at 11am, so we can walk together. Not of FB? Still come! It reads - “[we will meet on the] grass at Mosswood Park, at 11 am. At 1130 am, we’ll march downtown together. Please invite everyone you know who might be interested. Please bring signs, banners, instruments, etc…” …
… And bring your art. Lets show positive options to this movement by demonstrating what we hand-make, instead of what we purchase!
I will be designing my stilt walking occupation today! Let me know if you have any ideas by replying here.
And if you want to walk, but do not have anyone to buddy up with, please feel free to get in contact with me, even if we do not know each other yet! For me, in the least, this is about finding community.
