Occupy Seattle Now Visible at Westlake

Beginning Monday, November 28th, Occupy Seattle re-affirmed its visibility at Westlake Plaza with a daily Information tent and a General Assembly in the Park every Wednesday. In an effort to reach out to a broader audience and gain more participation in the movement, Occupy Seattle secured a weekly permit from Seattle Parks & Recreation to establish and maintain an information tent on the south side of Westlake Plaza. The permit will be renewed on a week by week basis. Adding to visibility at Westlake, our General Assembly unanimously approved holding an additional General Assembly every Wednesday at Westlake at 12pm. The first Westlake GA will be Wedsnesday, Nov. 30th.

Formed on October 1, 2011 Occupy Seattle is a leaderless movement of concerned Americans who have taken to occupying public spaces in order to focus our nation’s attention on the undue influence of large corporations on our government, elected leaders and our democracy itself. It is inspired by and modeled after the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    ORGANIZE — QUICK OR SLOW WHICH WAY TO GO?

    Quick way is to terrorize the 51% voting majority, the 51% most educated with all the wealth, by showing them how the multinational corporate rich who rule America have shipped all their wealth and mansions of residence offshore. Then, show how their profit would be less if they tried to save our economy instead of the record greed they now enjoy cannibalizing the economy by shipping manufacturing and new job growth over seas. Finally, show how the corporate rich have absolute rule over all our wars and use them to plunder by brutal imperialism. What Empire USA is all about.

    Slow way is for our Educated Middle-class movement to make peace with the Uneducated Laboring-class, the entire lower half of society. Namely, to stop being their slave drivers.

    For our Occupy movement is comprised almost entirely of the low end of the Educated Middle-class, people forced and priced out of the job market because their job skills are now being purchased at a forth of the cost overseas. A movement that stands dead-center between the upper half with all the wealth — and the lower half with all the debt.
