S30 – Occupy Boston 10yr Anniversary/ Change The Name!

Medgar Evers famously said “You can kill a man, but you can’t kill an idea.”, 10 years ago we projected this on walls everywhere. By 9 October 2011, Occupy protests had taken place or were ongoing in over 951 cities across 82 countries, and in over 600 communities in the United States(wiki).
That idea is still very much alive as you are reading this. We are planning Occupy Boston events this fall. If you are an OB ‘OG’, you’re invited! If you weren’t at Occupy Boston in 2011, you’re invited! Everyone is INVITED!
We plan to Occupy Faneuil Hall for the weekend of September 30th for Occupy Boston’s 10th Anniversary and plan to continue the fight to Change The Name. We will hold our first General Assembly in many years. What happens beyond S30 will be discussed at the General Assembly.
Everyone is Welcome, whether you were there in 2011 or not! We are the 99% and plan on exercising direct democracy. A better world is still possible if we work together, which means groups and organizations, faith-based groups and unions and most importantly people. Together we touch every part of our society.
While we celebrate our past, we have opportunity, maybe even a responsibility to make a better future. To put our knowledge, our tools, our love, and solidarity to work for the common good.
We’ve been through dark times, and if you are reading this, perhaps you too see that little speck of light in the distance as we do. We Can Rise Together! Join Us on S30 at Faneuil Hall!
