This Saturday, Dec 10th, we are having an Occupy Salem Oregon and Friends march. We will meet up at the Capitol steps at 2:00 PM. After a short rally, (really short due to the chilly weather) we will begin the march through the Salem City shopping district. The march theme is “Corporations are killing us and the planet”.
We have signs made in the shape of tombstones that depict statistics showing the harm done to us by corporate personhood along with the $$ spent on lobbying. To accentuate the point, there are a number of tyvek “haz-mat” style suits that can be worn. Everyone should bring any gas masks, respirators, or dust masks they have available. We will be targeting an undisclosed location for a “mic check” to send the message to the passers-by.
This will be the last planned march this year, so don’t miss it.
In January we will be holding the Occupy the Courts rallies and marches. Stay tuned.
