Occupy to Celebrate: The Resilience of OWS

NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–December 1, 2011.  On Saturday December 3rd, 2011, at 10:00 am, Occupy Wall Street and members of the New York faith community invite the Occupy Movement to join in a celebration of our occupation at Liberty Square. We are calling on all occupiers to reenergize our movement, keep Liberty Square active, and share ideas about the importance of outdoor spaces for our future. Bishop George Packard, Pulitzer prize-winning author and journalist Chris Hedges, and OccupyFaith will rally around Occupy Wall Street’s immediate need for spaces to continue organizing for social and economic justice.

The event will celebrate the launch of Tidal, a journal of occupation theory from the Occupy Movement. The journal provides a multidisciplinary exposition of the fundamental challenges posed to institutions of the status quo by the organized chaos of human beings relating to each other democratically and authentically.  At the event, contributors to the journal will bring its pages to life through readings, musical performances, and artistic exhibitions.

The occupations that we have created, our communities, are the heart of the movement. We will celebrate each other with food, songs, passionate speeches, heart-warming stories, and support from our allies and the broader community. There will be a call to reclaim and occupy outdoor spaces followed by a celebration of the best of our occupation and what is yet to come.
