CELEBRATE ONE WEEK OF OCCUPY RALEIGH– ALL DAY, ALL NIGHT, ALL WEEK
NC CAPITOL- MORGAN ST SIDEWALK- RALEIGH, NC
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22
RALLY AT 11AM
MARCH AT NOON
GENERAL ASSEMBLY AT 6:30 PM
DANCE PARTY AT 8:00 PM
For one week, through rain, shine, and bitter cold, Occupy Raleigh has remained strong. Despite being barred off the Capitol Grounds, protesters have maintained an occupation on the Capitol Sidewalk, on Morgan Street between Fayetteville and Salisbury Streets. Join Occupy Raleigh, as we celebrate a full week of occupation and gain more ground in the movement. There will be food, fun, and plenty of ways to get involved with Occupy Raleigh. At 11AM, we will meet at the Occupation, on the Morgan St. side of the Capitol Sidewalk (between Fayetteville and Salisbury Sts.).
Festivities will kick off at 11AM, and will continue through the night. Participants are encouraged to spend the night at the occupation if possible. Dress warmly for outdoor weather.
This is one of more than 150 ongoing occupations in cities across the U.S. that have been expanding since Occupy Wall Street began in the heart of the global financial system in New York City last month to demand that the banks pay for the economic crisis and the crimes that they are committing against our communities every single day. From every corner of the country, occupations have begun to demand jobs, healthcare, education, housing, an end to austerity, and to fight back against this political and economic system that serves the rich and corporations, not the people and the working class.
