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.
