WHAT: Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering Broadcast
WHERE: Oscar Grant Plaza
WHEN: Thursday, November 25, 6:00 AM
Tomorrow morning, as an act of unity with the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island, Occupy Oakland will be broadcasting the Sunrise Ceremony at Oscar Grant Plaza.
We will be assembling a community altar space beginning in the early morning and continuing throughout the day. All are invited to bring sacred objects to share. In particular, we’re requesting sage, copal, objects symbolizing the 4 directions, images of indigenous resistance, and images of indigenous life before conquest.
The community is also invited to bring breakfast and warm drinks to share with one another after the Sunrise Ceremony is broadcast.
Stay tuned for more information on this event, put on in solidarity with the American Indian Movement, that will go on throughout the day.
