The following email was recently sent to our supporters. If you are interested in our Interdependence Day, please contact Cassie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
To kick off a season of resistance to the oligarchy, the seven sisters are gathering together all those throughout the state of Connecticut and beyond who sympathize with the international Occupy movements, all those who experience hardship at the hands of the oligarchy.
We declare Saturday, June 16th, 1-5pm @ Bushnell Park, “Interdependence Day,” a day for families, friends and citizens to gather together in recognition of their resistance to the oligarchy for a potluck in the park, featuring music, speakers, and information tables. When the uber-rich are threatened, they show police force, so when the people are threatened, it’s time to show people force. Let’s show the powers that be that we have numbers. Let’s demonstrate to ourselves that we have power.
For the past three months we have organized within Hartford, Bridgeport and Waterbury. Now that we have a permit, it’s time to push our organizing into overdrive, and for that, we need YOU!
We are asking of you the following:
1. Organize your community/neighborhood,
2. Identify the immediate needs and concerns of your community,
3. Locate speakers that can speak to those needs,
4. Suggest bands for the event,
5. Arrange carpools and/or buses, and
6. Be at Bushnell Park on Saturday afternoon, June 16, 2012.
Please respond to this email in the affirmative if you are able to organize your community and attend.
If you decide to participate, and in preparation for the big day, we will convene conference-call “town halls” for the day of May 16th in every place where we are organized to see how each of us can contribute to making this event a success. You will be receiving more information on the town halls in future emails.
Also, depending on your social media needs and preferences, feel free to:
Various groups and Occupies are planning direct actions throughout the state for the spring and summer. By gathering together for one day, in numbers, we can fuel our momentum for the season.
