anyone know where to get Guy Fawkes mask locally?
I just read the statement on the Occupy Oakland homepage. Exactly the right message! Very well done indeed. Way to go Oakland!
Corrected:Go Oakland! Let's keep the plaza overflowing rain or shine! We shall overcome, si se puede!
Anecdote: I'm naturally rather shy and antisocial. However, I've handed out hundreds of Occupy Movement flyers today without hardly trying. Try writing "99%" and "occupytogether.org" on a white t-shirt and wearing it out and about. I believe in US!
Anyone want to don a Guy Fawkes mask on Halloween?
It's occupytogether.org (not .com) Thanks for spreading the word!
10:30pm Update: F. Ogawa plaza close to half-full with tents, including medic station and lots of food donations. Hurry to get a spot on the grass! Lots of folks of all appearances chatting and smiling--and it's still raining!
Grass is getting muddy fast--suggestions on how to preserve the park as usable space?
GREAT WORK PEOPLE OF OAKLAND> It is soaking wet out there and there were hundreds of people from all walks of life gathered at Plaza. We are the 99% - SOLIDARITY!PEACE
This was a occupy wall st. movement, not about race, not about Oscar Grant. The 99% includes all these people. We left because you are not representing occupy wall St. Start another movement if you want to address those issues, but OWS has more than enough issues. And lets keep it to English only. We cannot cater to every minority out there.
I'm desperate for signatures to a petition to end exclusionary zoning. Please consider signing this petition here http://wh.gov/gvP I've also posted 'Exclusionary Zoning Unconstitutional' at http://jamesrherman.newsvin... to elaborate and raise awareness. Thanks.
This will be an ongoing, open-ended occupation.
I will arrive before 5pm with my sign. Thank you for organizing this.
So is Monday 4pm the start of an ongoing occupation, or is the intent for that evening alone?
This is an open ended occupation.
The Oakland General Assembly decided today that the people of Oakland will occupy Frank Ogawa Plaza at the corner of 14th & Broadway on Monday, October 10 starting at 4:00pm in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, the many occupations underway across the country and Indigenous Resistance Day.
http://occupyoakland.org for flyers--more to come just getting the site up now
i will be out of town but will attend the following Monday
Hello Occupy Oakland! I'm looking for independent reporters for a new podcast called "The Occupants". I've set up a number you can call and leave a message reporting on the event you're at. All kinds of exciting things happen when you make people stop and take notice of you, and we're looking to help create a verbal picture of the Occupy movement from the participants in their own words. If you've got something to say, call [masked]occupants.tumblr.comreddit: http://ow.ly/6R8Yl
The Masai have a salutation, "And how are the children?"
Bless the 'children' of the USA who've manifested a movement inspired by millions around the world ~ The Jasmine Revolution turns to An Autumnal Awareness: Yum!
