Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
I wanted to share some information on the upcoming Occupy Vancouver movement that starts on Oct 15th, 2011 (no set end date) and encourage interested and curious VVers to come and join us.
It is intended to be a peaceful reclamation of public space in solidarity with what is taking place across the United States. People are also interested in teach-ins, workshops and experimenting in participatory democratic practices: grounding the movement, if you will, in local conditions. Ross Moster has already confirmed that VV is interested in participating in workshops on permaculture, local food security, and other similar topics. Here is the website: http://occupyvancouver.com/ The more than 300 general assembly participants this past Saturday are working on food committees, kids zones, music, workshops and security, to name just a few, and the format is completely open.
The meeting place is the VAG and (as of this AM) there are more than 2,900 people planning to attend so far.
Hope to see some of you there.
