OccupyDallas Releases Declaration of Purpose


Dallas, TX—(ENEWSPF)–Oct. 15, 2011 — OccupyDallas released a declaration of purpose Saturday in conjunction with their solidarity march on the Goldman Sachs building downtown. The declaration is as follows:

The following is an excerpt from the declaration of the occupation for New York City made at the OWS general assembly on September 28, 2011:

“As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies… Exercise your right to: peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face; generate solutions accessible to everyone.”

This is our declaration of purpose: OccupyDallas will continue to exercise its rights to peaceably assemble; we will continue to occupy public space until the voice of the 99% is no longer silenced by the voice of the 1%; we will work to create a process to address the problems we face; we will work to generate solutions accessible to everyone. OccupyDallas will continue to stand in solidarity with the occupations in the United States and around the world.

The OccupyDallas movement began Thursday, Oct 6 with a march from Pike Park to the Federal Reserve building. Over 1,000 people gathered to protest corporate greed and money influencing the government. The movement currently has more than 150 members occupying Pioneer Plaza in downtown, with hundreds more joining in daily for marches to various corporations and banks throughout the city. The movement stands in solidarity with similar Occupy movements happening across the nation and the world, including the original Occupy Wall Street protest that featured tens of thousands of marchers and continues to grow.
