Occupy Houston College Student Walkout On 11/11/11

Here is the poster for an upcoming Occupy Houston event.

Here is the Occupy Wall Street website.

Here are some details about the event from the Occupy Houston website-

We call on University of Houston students to meet in front of the library building at 11:00am.

At 11:30am we march to Tranquility Park in downtown Houston for a day of solidarity and celebration of global protest movements.

The festivities start at 2:00pm in the park!

From 2:00pm to 5:00pm we’re holding discussion circles in the park. All topics are up for chat, but we plan to discuss:

  • health care
  • the homeless
  • taking care of our veterans
  • spirituality in collective movements
  • occupation ideology

Don’t limit yourself to these! Tighten your thinking caps and lets talk about the issues that drive our movement. At 5:00pm we’ll open it up and celebrate art and poetry. We’ll have an open mic, so come on out and rap, sing, or perform. Get creative! This goes on until it ends, folks. We’re going to do this one right.

Don’t worry if you’re not at U of H. 11/11/11 is a national day of solidarity, and we welcome everyone! We are the 99% and we are finally making our voices heard!
