Anti-War Committee Stands in Solidarity with
Occupy Wall Street, Minneapolis
COUNTY/SHERIFF HANDS OFF THE PEOPLE’S PLAZA!
Yesterday, Hennepin County Commissioners voted for a plan to shut down the People’s Plaza on November 14th: All protest signs must be taken down and no one will be allowed to sleep at the Plaza.
Please call the Hennepin County Commissioners and let them know this is an unacceptable denial of our constitutional right to assemble! The numbers are listed below.
Starting with New York city, and spreading to more than a thousand cities in the US and across the globe, the Occupy Wall Street movement has given voice to the majority of people, who are suffering from an ever-deepening economic crisis here at home, and endless war abroad. Minnesota has joined this movement in saying it’s time to put people over profits, and several occupations have started here, including one in downtown Minneapolis.
Since October 7, thousands of Minnesotans have occupied the People’s Plaza, outside the Hennepin County Government Center, maintaining a presence day and night to demonstrate against corporate greed and political corruption.
