"Bringing Occupy Wall Street to VCU - Rally in Support of the 700 Arrestees
Time: Friday, October 7 · 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Park Plaza at VCU (in between the Hibbs Building and the Singleton Center aka the theater building) Richmond, VA
Created By: Julia Arnone, Josh Kadrich, Joe Woods, Trina Christina Tyler
THIS EVENT IS FOR VCU AND SURROUNDING RESIDENTS. You don't have to be a VCU student to attend. For a map of where the plaza is, click here: maps.vcu.edu/pdfs/mp_map.pdf The space is between buildings #92 and #49 off Park Ave.
Please note: this is not the forum for hate speech. Nobody cares about how you don't want to participate or what you think of the protesters. Such posts will be removed.
It's time for VCU to start rallying to support those who are occupying Wall Street. 700+ people were arrested and detained throughout New York City on Saturday October 1st, 2011 following a march on the Brooklyn Bridge. This is the first time in decades that a movement is spreading so rapidly and intensely across the nation.
Let's show VCU, Richmond, and Virginia that we stand in solidarity with protesters in New York, and that we will fight for workers' rights.
It's important we get as many people as possible to show up, local media will be alerted of the rally. Invite as many people as you know, and let's tell New York that VCU and Richmond are behind them 100%!
I'll be bringing already-made posters, as well as blank ones (as many as I can afford) and markers so people can create their own messages. I'll be passing around multiple pads of paper to collect email addresses and get a handle on who's willing to do what.
See you all there, and remember - Peace, Love, and Revolution."
