Occupy Watertown Training Session This Thursday

 Posted by Occupy Watertown
"The 99% Spring", a free education and training course designed to educate people about the Occupy Movement in the North Country, is set from 4:30-8 p.m. this Thursday, April at the Flower Memorial Library in Watertown.

People living in the North Country are invited to join in solidarity to share, learn, and take action to keep this movement growing, diversified, and leaderless.

This is a FREE education and training campaign on how individuals can use non-violent, direct action and coordinated community campaigns to create a new movement that addresses specific needs, resources, and well-thought out intentions; to develop a peoples-driven economy and voice of reason.

  • To form a local community of people committed to non-violent direct action to forge a more just economy.
  • To use storytelling as a means to find commonalities and connections as a method of creating solidarity.
  • To analyze the past in order to understand how we got here.
  • To create a vision for a new, more just economy.
  • To prepare personally and as a community for nonviolent direct action.
This is the first stage of the largest-developing North Country peoples movement for economic justice, sustainable development, and social equality.
