So far three people have signed up via Facebook to support the Occupy movement at 10 a.m. next Saturday, Dec. 3 at the corner of Fremont Boulevard and Walnut Avenue.
The Rev. Jeff Spencer and Co. will march from there to Fremont’s town square — the Valero gas station at Mowry Avenue and Fremont Boulevard — before heading up to Paseo Padre Parkway for a rally.
Along the way, we will pause briefly at various bank branches to bear witness:
- to the scandalous salaries the bank CEOs and executives get (unlike the people who work in these branches),
- to the need for compassion in the midst of the foreclosure crisis, and
- to our desire for a more equitable economy in our country.
At the park by the Courthouse – a symbol of justice in our society – we will have a rally/vigil (starting at 11:00). At the rally, the Rev. Jeremy Nickel will speak about his experiences with Occupy Oakland, including being arrested there.
You are invited to bring respectful signs that represent the aspects of the Occupy Movement that resonate most deeply in you.
