Grand Rapids Occupy plans re-occupation on July 4

June 28, 2012

Like many other cities around the country, Grand Rapids is planning a re-occupation on the 4th of July.

Those involved in Grand Rapids Occupy have not been inactive, they have been connecting with other struggles, holding meetings and engaging in skill sharing with people in West Michigan who are fed up with the current political and economic system.

People re invited to join the re-occupation at Monument Park in downtown Grand Rapids. According to GR Occupy:

In order to make the occupation work, we want to encourage people to come with their ideas for actions, workshops (for example, Can you do a talk on Smashing patriarchy? Capitalism? Direct Action? Or have relevant [or even not so relevant] skills to share?) We have plans for some workshops – for example direct action and know-your-rights type stuff, but we really need everyone to step up and participate. In addition there will be time to come together to talk about why we are all here and what we’re going to do from here.
