Activists to Occupy Sydney this Saturday
Inspired by the Arab Spring revolutions and Occupy movements blossoming on Wall St, across the US and throughout Europe, activists in Sydney will be gathering this Saturday 15th Oct at Martin Place at 2.30pm to launch the Occupy Sydney movement. They intend to camp out indefinitely in the Sydney CBD, to organise, discuss and build a movement for a different world, not run by the super-rich “1%”.
A lively organising meeting of 80 enthusiastic occupiers met Wednesday night at the University of Technology and agreed to the following preliminary unifying statement:
Occupy Sydney Unifying Statement:
We act in solidarity with protests and occupations that have occurred and are occurring in New York and other US cities, Spain, Greece, Egypt and other cities around the world.
- We are the 99%.
- The system is broken.
- A better world is possible.
- Human need, not corporate greed!
Occupy Sydney activists encourage all those who want to see a better world to come along and join the peaceful occupation. A general assembly – a mass democratic meeting – will be held in Martin Place to discuss what is wrong with this system, how we can change it, and the organisation of the occupation itself.
