What: National Solidarity Teach-In
When: Wednesday, Nov. 2nd, 2011 at 12 noon
Where: CSULB Campus, Upper Quad (-map-)
You’ve heard about Occupy Wall Street. You’ve seen footage of Occupy Los Angeles. You might even know about rallies for Occupy Long Beach. Not sure what the “Occupy” movement is about? Want to learn how to get involved? Come and participate in Occupy CSULB’s inaugural event at the Upper Quad on campus November 2nd.
The National Solidarity Teach-In, created by Occupy Colleges, will provide curious students access to experts, activists, and peers that can answer any and all questions regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement. These open dialogue workshops will teach students the fundamentals of General Assemblies, how Occupy Wall Street movement may affect future elections, historical perspectives on past Occupy Wall Street-like movements, what led to the Occupy Wall Street movement and what is next.
“Operation Defend Education,” sponsored by California Faculty Association (CFA), will provide the creative outlet for the event. Students will paint cardboard shields with slogans tying in the Occupy Movement with Defending Education. These shields will not only be used for future marches and demonstrations, but the CFA is offering a prize for the most creative and potent design.
The event runs all afternoon starting at 12 noon. Please spread the word! Contact us at email@example.com if you want to run a teach in, help with the event, or bring snacks. College students have historically been the spark that ignites social movements. It’s now our time to take control of our future, to shape our destiny, and proclaim in unison that “WE ARE THE 99%”
