Today is Solidarity Sunday – National Call to Stand in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland

Hello Everyone!

Below is a call for national solidarity with Occupy Oakland after brutal police repression yesterday. Occupy Philly’s Committee of Correspondence has asked us to forward the following message to you.

In addition, InterOccupy has schedule a conference call to discuss Solidarity Sunday. Today at 2pm EST / 11AM PST. All are welcome. The call will last roughly 30 minutes.




Occupiers everywhere!


In response to brutal police repression in Oakland this evening (including tear-gas, “flash” grenades, projectiles, mass arrests, and a pregnant woman hit in the belly by a policeman’s baton) direct action working groups from at least Occupy Wall St, Occupy Boston, and Occupy Philly, have stayed up late to craft a massive coordinated response. Here are the initial results:

In Philly, we will converge at LOVE Park, at 7pm EST.

In NYC, we will converge at Washington Square, at 7pm EST.

In Boston, we will converge at Copley Square, at 7pm. EST.

If your Occupy can come to a snap consensus on a place, email the location to so OWS can tell the world just how massively this movement responds to such brutality.

Tweet about it with #solidaritysunday and/or #J29.

Here’s a draft messaging statement prepared by Occupiers from these various cities (working collaboratively on etherpad, of course):

Yesterday, Occupy Oakland moved to convert a vacant building into a community center to provide education, medical, and housing services for the 99%. Police responded with tear gas, rubber bullets, beanbag rounds, and mass arrests. The state has compounded its policy of callous indifference with a ruthless display of violent repression. The Occupy movement will respond, as we have always responded: with an overwhelming show of collective resistance. 

Today, January 29, we take to the streets. J29. Across the country, we will demonstrate our resolve to overcome repression and continue to build a better world grounded in love and solidarity for one another. We will the our country, the world, and our cities, another world is possible and we will not stand for violent repression from the state and the police. 

All eyes on all Occupies.

Be creative! Be agile! BE ORGANIZED!
