Occupy Edmonton is concerned about how corporate interests are infecting our political institutions, dictating public policy and decimating the environment. We are also concerned about a system that puts the hunger for profits above the health and well being of all our communities.
On Oct 15, Occupy Lethbridge took to the streets along with over ten million other Occupy Movement supporters around the world. Occupy Lethbridge has been active since then, holding 4 general assemblies for supporters to voice their opinions and work towards a common vision for a better future.
The general assemblies are held every Monday at 7pm in Galileo’s Lounge in the Students Union Building at the University of Lethbridge. Anyone who wishes to contribute to this movement is welcome to attend.
Occupy is a broad reaching movement with many facets that reflect the systemic problems of our society. Through the general assemblies, Occupy Lethbridge has reached a consensus on themes that can apply to a variety of issues.
These persistent problems have been years in the making and will not be solved overnight. However, when we work in unison and with good will, we will be able to create the world we choose.
