Update on Beginning Plans for "A Call for Mass Action Against the Suppression of the Occupy Movement"
Sixteen people, representing a cross section of the many that have responded positively to the urgency of “A Call for Mass Action Against the Suppression of the Occupy Movement,” both within this movement and beyond, met in New York this past week to start planning. A beginning significant list of people, including prominent people in the arts, legal, and religious communities, have added their names as signatories.
The initial organizing group is calling on all those inspired by the spirit of the Occupy movement to widely circulate the Call next week, garnering hundreds of signatures including widely known people, a broad range of organizations including “Occupy” in many cities, as well as prominent voices of conscience. If you are in NY, join the organizing committee and come to the next meeting on Thursday, January 26. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All who take heart from the emergence of the Occupy movement need to act to see that the vicious suppression of the Occupy movement does not stand.
