Occupy Tacoma update

By Volcano Staff on October 30, 2011

Yesterday Occupy Tacoma - a protest against corporate greed modeled after the version of the Occupy Wall Street ongoing protest that originated, er, on Wall Street in New York - left its occupation camp at 21st and Pacific to marched through the Lincoln District. Photos of the march have hit Flickr here.

Tonight at 6:30 p.m. Occupy Tacoma gathers for its Sunday general assembly inside the First United Methodist Church of Tacoma. The Movement invites the public to attend these meetings, help shape its future and rail against inequality and the corporate takeover of politics.

Amen, sister.

Next March: Occupy Tacoma will meet at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 in front of McKinley Elementary School at McKinley Avenue and East 38th Street. From there, it's off to the U.S. Bank on Pacific Avenue in support of Bank Transfer Day - a nationwide movement encouraging people to transfer their money from big banks to credit unions and smaller community banks.
