FRIDAY 14 OCTOBER – FROM 4PM
OP DE VALREEP
POLDERWEG 120, AMSTERDAM
Drop by, be informed, join the debate, prepare
On Saturday, October 15th, squares will be occupied all over the world, including in The Netherlands. From the press release about the action in Amsterdam: "From midday onwards the Beursplein in Amsterdam will be occupied by anyone who disagrees with the way in which the current system works. We're inviting people to think about a change, a different, fair society and a true democracy. We call upon the 99% (yes, that's you!) to show initiative and to develop it according to your own capacities and will. Progress, forging ahead, collaboration and growing consciousness are key."
We are open from 4pm onwards. There are materials available for those who want to make banners. From 6pm onwards we will show videos of protests all around the world, and people will share the stories of their involvement with this movement and what will happen from the 15th onwards. And of course there will be debate.
Disclaimer: Not everyone here thinks Occupy Beursplein is fantastic, and we don't expect everyone at Occupy Beursplein to think we're fantastic. We want to give people a chance to start learning about the movement and engage each other in debate.
