Occupy Monterey Marches Tonight and Sunday
November 11, 2011
The Occupy Monterey folks are getting organized, with an encampment that's grown fourfold since the Weekly stopped by last Sunday and two marches planned for this weekend.
They're occupying Colton Hall tonight at 6pm with a rally and march through downtown (see video of last weekend's march here). "Let us gather and celebrate the freedom of thought and expression in a constructive manner, and give the city of Monterey a night to remember!!!", reads a flyer being distributed downtown by Occupy Monterey members.
Sunday's action includes a noontime occupation of Window on the Bay Park on Del Monte Avenue and a 1:30pm march downtown to express solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Organizers encourage supporters to bring "beach chairs, signs snacks, noisemakers and ideas for change."
