Occupy Galveston Protest On October 15th—Links To Other Occupy Movements In Texas

Among the many Occupy movements in Texas, I’m glad to report there is one in Galveston.

Galveston is a great Texas city. It is a fine spot to spend a day at the beach and to enjoy all the attractions, and it is a great place to stand up for the other 99%.

Occupy Galveston has a blog.

Occupy Houston also has a Facebook page.

From the Occupy Galveston blog—

“We will be protesting in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world on Saturday, October 15th, at 3:30PM on 37th and Broadway. We have chosen this location rather than a downtown one in an effort to gain maximum exposure within the community. We will be providing education regarding what the Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Together, and Occupy Galveston movement is about and how you can take part. Please come out and join us!”

Here is the Occupy Wall Street web site.

Many Texas cities have Occupy eforts taking place.

Here is a list with links of some of these Texas cities—

If there is not an Occupy movement where you live, then start one yourself. The work of freedom and democracy is up to each of us.

  1. Occupy Galveston’s growth has been amazing. On Monday, Oct. 10, a friend offered me a ride to the protest in Houston.

    “Why are we doing it here?” I asked.

    She told me to start it by posting an event on facebook. I posted the event for noon Wednesday Oct. 12, fully expecting to be a lone protester. More than a dozen people gathered, and several people stopped by and said that they would be joining us for the Saturday protest.

    That’s how easy it is to start an Occupy movement in your town.
