Occupy Grand Rapids Spring Training set for June 16
In preparation for the July 4 re-occupation action, Occupy Grand Rapids is hosting a Spring Training on June 16. Here is what their announcement says:
“MoveOn’s 99% Spring co-optation effort got ya down? Or just want to learn some mad skillz? Then come out to Occupy Grand Rapid’s Spring Training.
On Saturday, June 16 at 12pm, we’ll be making our triumphant return to Ah-Nab-Awen Park (the site of last fall’s occupation) for an afternoon of workshops and discussions aimed at increasing our collective knowledge base to get ready for our re-occupation.
We’ll be talking about all sorts of practical, hands-on stuff that anyone participating in an occupation or any activist project would likely need to know: basic legal and “know your rights” info, how to work or not work with the media, direct action (different tactics, why use direct action, etc), health and safety, and more surprises TBA.”
