Occupy Action Council weekly calendar (from Patricia Gray)

Please read this list and choose one that you can attend.  We need to be active in our community and connected to other people who share our concerns about the need to change our government.  We want a government to heed the voice of the many—not the few.

If you know of an activity planned for next week, let me know about it by
Tuesday afternoon before the activity.  Send the information to pat1936@gmail.com

                        PEACE VIGIL
                        Our nation is involved in endless wars all over the world.
                        How long will we allow the “war on terror” to continue?
                        These endless wars are bankrupting our nation and
                        causing us to suffer cuts in all of our domestic
                        programs.  (not to mention killing millions of Muslim
                        people)  Join us to inform people of what is going
                        on.  The wars are so ordinary that they are not
                        making the ‘news’ and people are not informed.
                        Join us to protest the wars and to inform the people.

                    lives, leaving families and communities shattered.
