Occupy Upstate Regional Conference
Mainstream media has been reporting the death of the Occupy Movement as of late. This as some of you know is a complete fallacy. We are constantly evolving, planning, and working to better the world around us.
This weekend (June 16th and 17th) Occupy Syracuse will be hosting A Better World Is Possible: Moving Forward Together in Activism, an opportunity for numerous affinity groups from much of New York State, and Occupy to converge in one space to learn, teach, and decide where we can collectively move forward to make a better world a reality. The day begins at 9am and ends at noon on Sunday and will include numerous speakers, teach in’s, roundtable discussions etc.
Saturday will include speakers Ray Lewis (a former Philly police captain of occupy wall street fame), Allen Rosenthal (speaking about the Prison Industrial Complex), Bram Loeb (Fracking) and Vermin Supreme. Music by Melodeego (bike powered band currently on their F@#$ Fossil Fuels tour), and a few surprises peppered throughout. We hope you are able to join us for what promises to be a great opportunity to learn, grow, and advance.
