Occupy Chicago! Occupy Wall Street! Occupy Kalamazoo! Occupy the United States! Where do we go from here?

Update: This was an announcement of an event that is now past.  For articles on the topic, please see:

‘You can’t evict an idea whose time has come!’: The Occupy movement defies police state attacks

and

Occupy Wall Street strikes deep chord, challenges rulers

and

Occupy everywhere, the whole world is watching!

The last two are from the new issue of News & Letters.

News and Letters committees invites you to a meeting:

Occupy Chicago! Occupy Wall Street! Occupy Kalamazoo! 

Occupy the United States! Where do we go from here?

DATE: Monday, October 24, 2011

TIME: 6:30 PM

PLACE: News & Letters Library, 

228 S. Wabash Ave., Room 230, Chicago

News and Letters Committees invites you to hear participants from Occupy Chicago and participate in the discussion yourself.  Help write the lead article for the next issue of News & Letters covering the occupations across the country and internationally, written by Occupiers in New York, Memphis, L.A. and Chicago.

The movement doesn’t just want to react to inadequate media coverage of the occupation. Help create our own coverage of the movement, including many voices of participants speaking for themselves and, in the process, learn about revolutionary journalism, unseparated from a philosophy of liberation.

Leading off the discussion will be two  participants in Occupy Chicago: Redwood and Gerry Emmett, World in View columnist for News & Letters, and author of “Palestinian youth open new front in Arab Spring.”
