A BETTER WORLD IS POSSIBLE! JOIN US!
Haven’t you always wanted to be in a parade? Want to be an evil bankster? A police officer? A tent monster?
This year’s parade theme is “Raise the Roof’.” Occupy’s spin is a “A Roof For All,” in support of housing as a human right. Super special skit. Details at PARADE PREP PARTY, Thursday at 4:30 at OE V, at 7th and Polk. Or come the morning of the parade and we’ll catch you up. This will be fun and G rated. Come have fun with friends, even those friends you have not met yet.
STILL NEEDED ITEMS: We still need tents, broken ones preferred, as once a tent monster always a tent monster, rendering it useless as a tent.
We are also looking for as many Occupy bandannas as possible. There are hundreds out there. Bring them with you!
PARADE DETAILS: Saturday morning, August 25, 2012. ENTRY 33.
STAGING AREA: Amazon Parkway, near 24th. Area will be closed to cars at 8:30 a.m. If you need to park close by, arrive early.
TIME: Gather between 8:30 and 9:30. Parade starts at 10:00. It will give us a chance to practice our skit and bring any newcomers up to speed. Let’s make a party of it with potluck food, coffee, and laughter.
