Following a resolution passed at the General Assembly on Wednesday, October 19th, the various standing committees and volunteers have organized a march upon Confederation Hill for Monday the 24th. Members of the public in St. John's and surrounding areas who support the Occupy Movement worldwide are encouraged to join with the community gathering at Harbourside Park by 11 AM on Monday morning. The group will be leaving to join up with other supporters at MUN and the Holiday Inn, arriving at the Confederation Building by 12:30 PM.
The route through the downtown core will take us past the banking district, then heading up and over Carter's Hill. The forecast is currently favorable, but please come prepared for the season. We will also be taking a collection of non-perishable food items for the local food-sharing association.
An Open Letter to Premier Kathy Dunderdale
Dear Premier Dunderdale,
On behalf of the Occupy NL group, we would like to formally invite you to join us in our peaceful assembly outside of the Confederation Building over the lunch-hour on Monday, Oct 24th. We are being joined by members of the Federation of Labour and concerned students from Memorial University.
We feel strongly that the House should resume sitting as soon as possible. We agree that the House as it currently functions is not conducive to effective government or constructive debate, so let's fix it! We are interested in engaging in the process of making it more effective, so it can truly serve the needs of our citizens. If you share our passion, join us!
