The #OccupyWallStreet Revolution is spreading around the country . . . and coming to Hartford . . .
One of the organizers has called for a planning meeting
on Sunday, October 2nd, 5 PM,
at the Charter Oak Cultural Center (21 Charter Oak Avenue, Hartford CT):
“We will hold an open forum for any and all concerned who wish to voice their opinions.
At this meeting we will discuss future actions in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement as well as methods of encouraging local involvement.
We will hold a preliminary presentation and discussion in order to familiarize citizens
with the aims of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
It is important that we involve as many people as possible
while this movement continues to gain momentum.
If you are unable to attend, please email us at occupy.hartford.ct at gmail.com
and we will notify you of future meetings as well as alternate ways to become involved.
We look forward to seeing you there.”
Many groups have organized around economic justice issues in the past,
and currently Bring Our War $$$ Home is planning a March and Rally in Hartford
on Sunday Oct. 16th.
The national momentum of #OccupyWallStreet provides the inspiration
to bring hundreds of people into the streets to #OccupyHartford
to demand a CT and US economic and political system
that serves the human needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable and disenfranchised, and not the war and incarceration machine and greed of the top 1%.
