Occupy Indianapolis
I've been requested to post this here by an Indiana activist who no longer posts at DU.

Occupy Indianapolis

Saturday at 12:00 - Sunday, 01 January 2012

Location

Veterans Memorial Plaza
Indianapolis, IN

The Event time is Saturday, October 8, 2011 12pm-6pm and Sunday October 9, 2011 12n-2pm with cleanup directly after both days.

We want corporate influence out of our government. It doesn't matter your race, creed, religion, sexual identity, political stripe... none of those matter. What matters is that WE as human beings recognize the COMMON cause. Restore HUMANITY to our once-proud nation. We've become so divided by the prodding and division of our corporate masters and the politics/media machine that they think we won't find it in ourselves to look past all of the imposed separations and see each other as humans. As citizens. WE have to unite...

come together...

not in solidarity with any singular cause, but in the UNITING cause of compassionate humanity.
...
Our strength comes not from our leaders, but from our neighbors. STOP letting some faceless group of manipulative billionaires tell YOU what to think. Open your eyes, heart and mind, and see your own humanity, and the humanity in the people around you.

THIS is where we will find the strength to break the hold on our collective consciousness. Only then will we succeed... THE POWER IS IN WE, THE PEOPLE... Realize it, and use it...

WE are not Left.
WE are not Right.
WE are the 99%.
and WE will prevail.We will come together as one on Saturday

October 8th at 12 noon on Veterans Memorial Plaza in downtown Indy for a General Assembly of the people of Indianapolis. We hope you will join us.

2. Occupy Wall Street inspires Indianapolis protest

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Hundreds of people of all ages marched around Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis to protest what they see as economic inequality and a government that doesn't listen.

More than 1,000 people gathered on Veterans Memorial Plaza downtown Saturday to take part in Occupy Indianapolis, inspired by the three-week-old Occupy Wall Street protest in New York.

Most carried signs with sayings like "Stop the war on workers" and "Stop corporate greed."

Fifty-2-year-old Mark Gilbert of Fishers says he joined the protest out of frustration with the economy. Others say they're fed up because the government listens more to corporations than it does voters ...

4. People are still occupying!
They are at the statehouse and need more people to join in. The crowd is much smaller than yesterday. They moved and I wonder if a lot of people just thought it was over.
