#OccupyVentura Heads for City Hall 10/28; Marches Downtown Set For 10/28, 29, 30

October 26, 2011

This weekend, #OccupyVentura heads back downtown for an encampment at City Hall. Unfortunately, in order to get a city permit, the group agreed with the City to be in a parking lot above and behind City Hall.

To increase visibility, personally, I encourage participants to hang out on the lawn IN FRONT of City Hall and to spend the weekend traipsing up the hill to the parking lot and back.

The lawn should also provide you with a more comfortable place to lounge, plan, and get on the internet!

That’s where you’ll find me –I hope to be there Saturday afternoon and Sunday too…as well as during the following week!

In a press release, Jay Leiderman writes:

Coming off a successful Oct. 15-16 action drawing people of all ages to Downtown Ventura’s Mission Park, Occupy Ventura is planning to now Occupy City Hall in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street.

In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Ventura continues its occupation this Friday at 6 pm at City Hall.

Ben, a local teacher said, “We are the poor, the working class and the middle class who are no longer willing to accept the government’s failure to attend to the needs of the people and continued abuses of the people by corporate interests.“

An increasingly worn out populace, battered after many years of the Wall Street-created economic crisis, has risen up and given birth to a new grassroots movement. Since Sept. 17, thousands of people (the 99%) have “occupied” public spaces around the country in protest, starting with Occupy Wall Street in New York City’s Zuccotti Park.

It is reported by Wikipedia that Occupy Protests are now going on in over 600 communities in the U.S. and in over 900 cities worldwide.

An official inquiry into the cause of the 2007 financial crisis has identified a toxic mix of widespread failures in financial regulation, risky lending and reckless Wall Street practices associated with mortgage-related securities. As the nation’s economy collapsed, $4.72 trillion of our tax money was disbursed to Wall Street as bailouts. Now, four years later, Wall Street barons are sitting on piles of cash and funneling contributions to politicians who promise to unravel the protections set up to prevent future crises.

The Top 1 percent are taking in more of the nation’s income than at any other time since the 1920s.

In the mean time, income inequality in the United States is at an all-time high, even topping levels seen preceding during the Great Depression. The Occupy movement represents the 99 percent of Americans who have been left behind and are fed up.
