Demystifying the Occupy Movement

Saturday, March 31, 2012

This workshop, presented by several Occupy activists, will give you a general introduction to the Occupy movement and Occupy Seattle.

The session will be held at the Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church, 14741 1st Ave NE, on Saturday, April 7, 2012

12 p.m.: Lunch of soup, bread and snacks included with workshop donation
1- 3 p.m.: Workshop
3- 4 p.m.: Time to chat and discuss

Cost: $10.00 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

Some questions that will be answered:

-What does Occupy Wall Street want?
-How are they different from and similar to other progressive groups?
-How do they propose to stop corporate domination of American politics?

Find out from members of Occupy Seattle about the local movement, and how to get involved. How can a large group of people with vastly different views make a decision? What is the General Assembly decision making process like? How can we restore the voice of the people and get rid of big-money influence in American politics? Why and how are faith and spiritual communities getting involved? Why are the camps important? What lessons were learned from the camp experience?

Sponsored by: Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Church Peace & Justice Committee and Occupy Chaplains.
