Occupy Wall St. Info Session!

So, Wesleyan: you may already be aware of our activist history. Interested in getting involved in the present?

Care about the security of our future?  Concerned about the current state of affairs around the world? Want to be part of history in the making?  We do!  September 17th (this Saturday) marks the beginning of a global movement to occupy financial districts, Tahrir Square-style, to call for true democracy and symbolically protest corporate globalization!  People will be coming together to set up camp and peacefully occupy the streets in cities around the world.  Saturday morning we will be leaving as a group to partake in the historic event!

Come to the informational meeting, THURSDAY at 6PM @ 190 High St. (the UOC), if you think you may be interested in partaking.  We will use the time to discuss logistics, talk about what is likely to happen, as well as what message we would like to convey as Wesleyan students.  In addition, we will be brainstorming signage and other creative statements.  The meeting will be potluck-style…bring food if you can, some will be provided.  Come let us know what you think!
