Occupy Boston Solidarity March - Sat., Oct. 29 at 1 PM
FROM OCCUPYBOSTON CALENDAR for Saturday, October 29th at 1 PM

On Saturday, Occupy Boston will take to the streets in solidarity with occupations across the nation to show support for Occupy Oakland.

After enduring several days of brutal police assaults that left the 24-year-old Scott Olsen a former member of the 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines and a veteran of two tours in Iraq hospitalized with brain swelling and a fractured scull, Occupy Oakland retook their camp with an incredible show of nonviolent resistance. It is essential that we seize this moment to demonstrate the national and international strength of the movement. When you shoot at us, injure our friends and put our heroes in the hospital, we will respond with an overwhelming display of coordinated nonviolence.

We will be peaceful, powerful and clear. From Oakland to Boston, Portland to Melbourne, we will show the world what solidarity looks like.

March begins at Dewey Sq. at 1 PM
Winterizing meeting at 2 PM
Glenn Greenwald to speak at 4 PM


Churches, organizations, and individuals from towns across Massachusetts are planning to take part in solidarity march.
