Occupy Chicago : National Day of Action SATURDAY, October 15th. Metropolis Coffee company to donate to-go boxes!
We love Chicago's local businesses. With Occupy Chicago, and the Occupy movement in general picking up steam via rabid twitter accounts, and a National Day of Action coming up this Saturday, we thought we'd reach out to some great local companies. See if they'd like to donate some needed items to the cause. We contacted Metropolis Coffee, and our e-mail was briskly passed on to David Retzer, who responded almost immediately, saying the company would like to donate some to-go boxes of coffee, even though their monthly donation quota was full.
It's this kind of selfless mentality that will lead real change.
Join us, in a National Day of Action :
On October 15th people from all over the world will take to the streets and squares.
From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non violent protest.
The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end.
United in one voice, we will let politicians, and the financial elites they serve, know it is up to us, the people, to decide our future. We are not goods in the hands of politicians and bankers who do not represent us.
On October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it happen.
It’s time for us to unite. It’s time for them to listen.
There is a main march at 7PM on Saturday, saying they will leave from Jackson & Lasalle at 7pm to Michigan and Congress.
Occupy for change. Join us.
