It isn’t camping… or even sleeping… but it IS our first overnight Occupation in Redwood City! It’s a place for the 99% to express our concerns for the economy and more.
This event begins Friday, September 28th, in front of Redwood City’s City Hall (Jefferson and Middlefield). From the end of our General Assembly (usually around 8) to the early morn, we will have activities to keep you awake, enjoying yourself, and occupying. Practice your right to peaceably assemble, while taking back our common space that is all too often corporate-controlled. While this “encampment” will only last one night, physical occupation has been a powerful tactic and symbol for our movement against income inequality. This is the perfect opportunity to attend your first ORWC event, or to occupy along with your friends and family who have not yet been involved. Stay as long as you’d like. We hope that this will be a big, lively event with lots of people. Your presence matters!
The official program of activities will be announced a week before the event. This is YOUR event and we want your input! What do you want to do? Skill shares, crafts, games, discussions, performances? Let us know!
What to bring? Warm clothing, food for yourself, water for yourself. If you have them: Something to sit on, like a blanket or camping chair; a lantern. Amusements such as board games, musical instruments, craft supplies, etc. if you like
***Note: You are welcome to set up “structures” such as tents, but be forewarned that they may be confiscated by the police. Do not bring “structural” items that you mind parting with***
To quote this lovely chalk drawing, Occupy is far from over!
