Convening Silver Spring General Assembly / Occupy Montgomery County

Marylanders participating in Occupy DC and Freedom Plaza/Human Needs Not Corporate Greed encampments have now also begun organizing to convene a General Assembly or “People’s Assembly” to bring the Occupy movement to Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Wheaton and surrounding neighborhoods in Montgomery County.   Their next (2nd) organizing meeting is this Saturday February 11 at 1p.m. at the Electric Maid Community Exchange in Takoma Park – 1 block up from Takoma metro station on Carroll.    Contrary to some reports in the mainstream media, Occupy movement is not “over” in the DC area and many folks that are still active with Occupy DC and Freedom Plaza are expanding into surrounding neighborhoods.   Occupy Mt. Pleasant, and Occupy Towsend University are also ramping up.   Folks are encouraged to spread the word and come and help us build for a General Assembly/People’s Assembly in Montgomery County.   Proposed topics for Saturday:

  • Occupy Values – Why we Occupy and support the Occupy Movement
  • Issues/Campaigns that matter to us and the Mo Co community
  • General Assembly structure/parameters and outreach planning
