Occupy Grand Rapids produces first zine, continues occupation
Despite the lack of much news coverage, Occupy Grand Rapids still exists and continues to do important work.
Some people are still sleeping outside at Fountain Street Church, while others are having a regular presence at Monument Park on the corner of Fulton & Division. They are having formal rallies every Wednesday (4 – 6pm) and Saturday (2 – 6pm).
Occupy Grand Rapids is also having General Assembly meetings three days a week (Sunday 2pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm) to provide a forum for discussion and direction that the local occupy will take. General Assemblies are held at the base camp, which is outside of Fountain Street Church near the north side entrance.
In addition, some people involved in Occupy GR have produced a zine called the Occupocalypse, which can be downloaded or obtained at the Occupy GR base camp and gatherings at Monument Park.
The 20-page zine is very visual, with great images and content that speaks to the aspirations and vision of those involved.
Lastly, the Occupy GR wiki site also has a calendar so you can keep up with a new actions planned, follow the General Assembly meeting minutes and find any new resources that are available.
