Missed last Saturday's National Day of Action? Marched once and can’t wait for more? Just out of jail and ready to re-pitch your tent? Here are the main events from the official Occupy Seattle calendar for the week ahead:
On Friday, Oct 21, at 9:30 a.m. at Westlake, there will be a protest against foreclosure auctions—you know, the selling off of homes that people in the 99 percent lost because they couldn’t pay their mortgages (often because they lost a job or fell prey to predatory lending, or both).
On Saturday, Oct 22, at 2 p.m. at Westlake, there’s a previously scheduled March Against Police Brutality and a general "Day of Solidarity"—and, who knows, maybe that show of solidarity will once again turn into a large Saturday night party / overnight re-occupation.
On Tuesday, Oct 25, at 11 a.m. at Westlake, there’s an anti-war vigil.
On Wednesday, Oct 26, at 7 p.m. at Westlake, there’s a meeting to discuss the formation of a Public Bank for Washington State.
And if all of that sounds stressful, there’s “meditation/silent reflection” scheduled for every day at 6 p.m. outside the Westlake See’s Candies. Suck on a caramel while you quietly adjust your Chakras. Good for the local economy and your soul.
(However, if all of that sounds not at all stressful—if it in fact sounds to you like way too little protesting for this important moment—well, hey, the General Assembly meets every day at 6:30 p.m., also at Westlake. Go tell ’em!)
