A whole couple dozen people turned out for the anniversary of Occupy in Raleigh downtown today. Turn out might have been hampered by the fact their own website listed the event as occurring on the 13th instead of the 15th which was the actual anniversary I believe:
Occupy Raleigh turns 1 year old and invites everyone, especially those who have participated over the year to the State Capitol (where Morgan & Fayetteville Streets meet) on October the 13th from Noon until three! We want to celebrate those who made events addressing the issues that continue to inspire Occupy Raleigh to stand up and speak out. Come out and help us celebrate rain or shine! Cake & ice cream, music, a few speakers and an open Mic for anyone who would like to express themselves! Come and share your perspectives on accomplishments, issues, and lessons learned over the course of the Occupy Movement’s first year! Along with the celebration Occupy Raleigh will be collecting food, winter coats and blankets! We will end the day with a People’s General Assembly at 4pm.
*Food Donations will benefit Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, coats and blankets will be distributed to local shelters.
This event is wheelchair accessible and disability affirmative. If you need additional accommodations please contact us 72 hours prior to the event.
