Occupy Louisville begins Tuesday

Peaceful people of all ages and all walks of life will be convening Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 12 noon, on the corner of 4th and Jefferson Streets in downtown Louisville to begin an ongoing peaceful demonstration called Occupy Louisville.

The mission of the group, as developed by several participants who first met together on Sunday afternoon is simple:  

"Occupy Louisville will be an ongoing non-violent, civil disobedient demonstration opposing corrupt corporate influence in U.S. politics, the influence of money and corporations on democracy and a lack of legal and political repercussions for the global financial crisis. We will also be demonstrating our solidarity with those participating in Occupy Wall Street in New York, and like events all over our nation."

The group who came together and developed this mission also note their mission is subject to revision by a consensus of occupation participants as the action continues.

All participants who agree with the group's mission are welcome to join them, and any donations of food and/or public support from those who are unable will be much appreciated. The occupation, like other ones occurring throughout the country, is planned to continue indefinitely until concrete legislative changes are made that serve our mission.

The smart rich know they can only build the gate so high. And, sooner or later history proves that people when they've had enough aren’t going to take it anymore." said filmmaker Michael Moore recently on Current TV's Countdown, who supports Occupy Wall Street.

Other celebrities who have already gave their support for Occupy Wall Street include Russell Simmons, Anti-Flag, Salman Rushdie, Margaret Atwood, Noam Chomsky, Bill McKibben, Radiohead and U.S. Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders.
