A Community focused on Local, National and International Environmental, Social Justice and Economic Issues. The Group is committed to take non-violent direct action by means of reeducation, media, petitions, protest and civil disobedience for the betterment of all Creation.
OccupyHCC is a group of students and student allies from Holyoke Community College. Our focus is to stand in solidarity and lend support to OWS. In our own community we are focusing on student issues and social/economic justice issues in our local communities that affect our student and their neighbors. Being a community college, community is important to us and we try to keep the larger community in mind, not just address student issues on campus. Many of our students come from low income households, and Holyoke itself has a large low income population. We are mindful of this when choosing what actions to take.
We are in contact with Occupy groups around Western Massachusetts and other social/economic justices groups. We join in solidarity with other groups whenever possible, we believe that supporting actions of established organizations is a good way to build community.
One thing that makes us different than many other college occupy groups is that our school has been very supportive of our actions so far.
