On Thursday, October 6, 2011, Occupy Houston will take part in a simultaneous national demonstration. Participating cities include Austin, Dallas, Washington D.C., Portland, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and more.
“Occupy Houston is a local expression of the global movement to end the corporate corruption of our democracy. It is a volunteer-organized effort providing infrastructure and support for Houstonians to exercise their First Amendment rights. We stand in solidarity with other communities expressing their right to peaceably assemble in a similar fashion.” writes Dustin Phipps of Occupy Houston.
“We, the people, will assemble at Market Square Park at 301 Milam at 8:30AM. We, the people, will march to the JP Morgan Chase Tower at 600 Travis at 9 am to hold a demonstration. We, the people, will convene a General Assembly at Hermann Square in front of City Hall at 901 Bagby at 10 am.”
