We are in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and other occupations across the globe. This is a nonviolent, non-partisan movement.
So inspired by the events going on around us, citizens of Long Beach and surrounding cities are getting together to OCCUPY LONG BEACH. We are in our very first stages of development and can use all the love and light we can get. Please check back frequently as this page will be updated with every decision we make.
This is a gathering of people who support peace and social, economic, and environmental justice to exchange ideas and demand our voices be heard. We have recognized that in our current political norm, it takes money to get close to the ears of the decision makers. We aim to have a collective voice so strong that we can be heard from a distance. Our intention is to maintain a significant presence in Long Beach, California as a unified force for positive change. We will use ongoing actions of nonviolent resistance to disrupt the forces that corrupt our political process and undermine our rights and human needs. We will demand changes that shift power away from concentrated corporate capital and free us to create solutions that lead us to a just and sustainable future.
WE ARE THE 99%
