Occupy Dame Street is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many nationalities, backgrounds, genders and political persuasions. This movement is sister to Occupy Wall Street and all other occupations in the wider Occupy movement. This is a non-partisan movement.
The success of the October 15th has triggered an unprecedented momentum for global action. Both developed and developing countries around the world must unite in our struggle for real democracy and basic human rights as we are all subject to the same corrupt global system that favours greed over needs.
Let’s act in solidarity on this symbolic day as a culmination of this amazing year of protests, from the Arab Spring, to the May 15th movement, to the Occupy movement… and on to 2012!
Join us at the Garden of Remembrance on Saturday the 10th of December 2011 at 2pm.
