Greetings Citizens of Vancouver,
As we watch the peaceful protest in New York City, “Occupy Wall Street”, explode with massive amounts of people, and groups forming similar “Occupy” protests around the world, we must realize that it is time for us to stand up with them.
On October 15th we will stand peacefully with others from around the world to demand a true democracy.
It is time to come together and educate each other. We will stand in solidarity with these other movements and we will create a platform for people to speak and provide an audience that will listen.
Let them gawk, let them ask questions, let them wake up.
We realize that our social, economic, and political structures are broken.
This is more than just a protest “against” something. It is about coming together as people, acknowledging things are broken, and working together to fix them.
The time is now. (October 15) :)
The place is the Art Gallery (a good “home” next to the financial district).
This general occupation of public space is an ongoing event. Bring Tent.
All organizations should come prepared with booths/speakers/performers/etc.
We will be out there for as long as it takes and we all need to work together to make this work.
See you all there. :)
