The Interoccupy Update for Aug. 28th Sept 3rd

August 28, 2012
By opdxmycelium

Welcome to the InterOccupy newsletter for the week of August 27th, 2012.  If find yourself in Florida, be sure to Join the Coalition to March on the RNC, or perhaps Shutting Down Bain is more your speed.  Find out how you can show solidarity with Mark Neiweem, one of the #NATO5 defendants,  brutally beaten by police officers while in the Cook County Jail in Chicago last week. And of course dont forget to check out S17s Hub and Website to find out how to get to New York or to the nearest solidarity event in your area.
 
InterOccupy is committed to upholding clear channels of communication for the movement.  We dont create or own any of the newsletter content; we simply deliver the information that comes to us via the newswire and coordination Hubs on InterOccupy.net.
