INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AND SOLIDARITY
COME TO AUSTIN CITY HALL AT 6 PM
Solidarity with Occupy Oakland! Defend Occupy Austin!
Last Tuesday, police brutally assaulted Occupy Oakland with tear gas, rubber bullets, batons and flash grenades, arresting dozens and critically wounding 24-year-old Iraq veteran Scott Olsen.
In response, Occupy Oakland has put out a call for a general strike on Wednesday, November 2. Several of Oakland’s largest unions have signed on and world-wide, occupiers and other activists are organizing solidarity actions.
Meanwhile, Occupy Austin is facing a increasing degree of police harassment and intimidation, with mass arrests of Occupiers during Halloween weekend and a growing and heavy-handed police presence at City Hall.
Across the country, we must take a stand. We are the 99%. We will not be silenced!
We need EVERYONE to come to City Hall this Wednesday. Plans for some big actions later in the evening are in the works too.
