OAKLAND RISE UP FESTIVAL: Saturday and Sunday, 1/28 and 1/29
Saturday, 1/28 – Afternoon (at building occupation TBD)
Sunday, 1/29 – All day (at building occupation TBD)
It’s cold outside.
Like millions of people in this country,
Occupy Oakland has no home.
And yet, all over the city, thousands of buildings stand empty.
On January 28, we’re going to occupy one of those
buildings and turn it into a social center.
We’re going to fill the space with a kitchen,
first aid station, sleeping quarters, an assembly area,
libraries, free school classes,
and hundreds of uses yet to be determined.
Let’s establish our new home, defend it,
and adapt it to Oakland’s needs.
We get what we can take.
