We, a group of concerned Islanders, have come together to say that we stand in solidarity with the Occupy movements happening across the world.
We are a grassroots organization of concerned citizens who have come together to discuss the social, economic and political issues negatively impacting our lives. We recognize that many of these have their roots in an unjust political economic system and are being worsened through practices of neoliberalization. We are currently undergoing a process through which we hope to identify the provincial, federal, national and international issues that affect/concern us as Islanders. On Saturday we are holding a 'town hall' type of event at which we encourage people to come out and voice their concerns and share their stories of frustration and exploitation (info below). After identifying key issues to Islanders, we aim to move forward with a series of learning modules, walk abouts, and more politically based events and actions. The direction of these approaches will be decided through collaboration between interested group members.
