What: Occupy Pasadena calls for a General Strike to be held on May 1st, 2012. We encourage people to with-hold their labor power for the day by not going to work, not going to school, and joining a demonstration during the day at Occupy Los Angeles’ Solidarity Park.
How: By working with the General Strike Preparation Committee of Los Angeles (occupymay1st.org) and reaching out to our community. This is just a general call in principle, more work will have to be done to begin organizing around the issue–outreach, flyering, events, etc.
Why: We’re the city of Roses. The People don’t just need bread to eat, they need roses for dignity. We strike for those who have no work. We strike for the rights of immigrants to live in peace and dignity. We strike for an end to evictions and foreclosure–because dignified shelter is a human right. We strike to call for quality and free education. We strike to demand that all human beings have access to healthcare, something that should be fact, not hope.
Consensus: Statement: “Occupy Pasadena (General Assembly)agrees that any inquiries from government agencies, including law enforcement, about our organization, or regarding our operational plans, be directed to our website by the Communications Committee. We strive for transparency and open communications. Any official communication from Occupy Pasadena (General Assembly) will only be handled by a designee of the General Assembly”
Consensus: Weekly Marches at 6:00pm every Friday.
How: from Lake/Colorado on the North Side of the street down to Fair Oaks and Colorado. Then March back–on the south side of the street–to rally and have open mic (using the Peoples’ Mic) at the main entrance of the Paseo Colorado Mall on the Public Sidewalk.
Why: In solidarity with the world-wide Occupy Movement and the 99%, we march to reclaim our public space so that we can re-imagine and re-form ourselves together as a human community. Further, our intent is to spread awareness that we are here, and invite community members not only to watch us, but join us as well.
