Area Solidarity Working Group Notes for Thu 6Sep2012

September 7, 2012 admin Working Group NotesComments Off

Statement of Area Solidarity

We affirm the right of our sister Occupations to fight economic injustice using methods of peaceful protest. We make this Declaration of Solidarity and affirm that should the police attempt to forcibly disrupt ANY Occupation within 100 miles radius: we agree to rally at a massed protest organized by the hosting Occupation. We urge all Occupations to sign this Declaration as a show of Solidarity to your area Occupation. An assault to one of us: is an assault to all of us. Power to the peaceful!
