Good morning, movement! The fog has cleared and now we can see into the future! Some updates from Occupy Berkeley:
1. CAMP IS GROWING! We now stand 89 tents strong. Come out to MLK Park at Allston and MLK in Berkeley to join camp, to help out with chores, or to talk politics.
2. CAMPER NEEDS: the complete list is here, but some stand-out recent needs are cold-weather and rain gear, batteries of all sizes, and flashlights.
3. 2 MONTH ANNIVERSARY: Our 2 month anniversary is coming up on December 8th. Be on the lookout for an exciting day of events that will target the big banks that steal from us and credit card companies that try to swindle us. We’re also planning some street theater and more. Join us at 9AM on Friday at MLK and Allston for a planning meeting.
4. COUNSELING: We have some counselors who have donated their time to the Occupy Berkeley camp on Fridays at 3. If you have counseling or other relevant skills (medical, mediation, etc) you want to share with Occupy, please come down at that time.
5.DECEMBER 12 PORT SHUTDOWN: After a few nights of talk, Occupy Berkeley is proud to say we endorse the West Coast Port Shutdown. See you in the streets!
