Breaking news this morning was that that 18 mayors had a conference call to coordinate the police raids on Occupy protests in recent days. Rumor has it that Homeland Security and the FBI may be coordinating the coordination.

Anyhoo, I’ve been asked to PSA y’all about Occupy Phoenix activities and I’m happy to oblige. Here’s what’s on the agenda for the next few days:

Event: Occupy the Phoenix City Council Public Meeting

Date and Time: Wednesday, November 16th at 3:00pm

Location: Phoenix City Council

Details: Pursuant to A.R.S. Section 38-431.02, notice is hereby given to the members of the PHOENIX CITY COUNCIL and to the general public, that the PHOENIX CITY COUNCIL will hold a meeting open to the public on Wednesday, November 16, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. located in the City Council Chambers, 200 West Jefferson, Phoenix, Arizona.

Please join us and make your voice heard! This is a call to participate in the policy process as a collective and voice our concerns as active citizens of Phoenix, Arizona. Although there will be a focus on responding to the continued selective enforcement of the urban camping ordinance within, and beyond, the Occupation, we urge you to voice whatever is in your heart. Dress to impress, and arrive 30 minutes prior to the 3pm start time. This will insure that you have time to properly fill out a Speaker Comment Card and reserve your time to speak. All speakers will have a two minute time limit. Also, be prepared to wait through the formal meeting process. This could potentially last up to 2 hours.

If you are unable to make it in person but would be interested in providing others with assistance in adding their voices to the effort, please email your particular concern in the form of a short essay or statement to legal@occupyphoenix.net Please keep it to 200 words or fewer. We will then print those statements and allow any in attendance the opportunity to read them for you!

Together we will amplify each other’s voices!

Occupy Phoenix Rattles Light Rail, Stands Up for Economic Justice with #N17, #N18 Events
Resist! Reclaim! Recreate!
Phoenix, AZ 11/15/11 – Occupy Phoenix protestors will stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and turn up the heat on the 1% with two solid days of action this Thursday and Friday. The 99% is no longer willing to have our First Amendment right to assemble violated by the enforcement of arcane laws that result in the arrest of Occupiers for falling asleep in a public park. Condescending notions of urban “camping” and snide remarks about homelessness meant to slander those brave enough to take a stand against corporate greed are no longer acceptable.
On Thursday #N17, morning commuters will be asked to share their own stories of foreclosure, crushing student loan debt and lack of health care as occupation of the Light Rail begins. Occupation Crews will meet at three stops (Sycamore/Main, Washington/Central or Montebello/19th Ave) at 7am sharp to wake up residents who’ve been lulled/coerced into indifference. A flash mob for the 99% is slated for midday in the business and entertainment districts.
Teach-ins at César Chávez Plaza will begin at 6pm. Topics include non-violent civil disobedience, economic and social justice and the First Amendment freedoms of speech and assembly.
Free Speech Friday #N18 includes a “Put Your March Where Your Money Is,” a nonviolent action in Downtown Phoenix at 4pm. Marchers will return to César Chávez Plaza to rally for an economy that works for everyone. An additional action sure to shake up the 1% will also occur.

    Heehee!
    Mikey Bloomberg sure did a number by cracking down on the Occupy Wall St. DFHs! Kicked a hornets nest dint he? Why can’t those commies respect the law that strong arms them in the middle of the night and trashes their personal belongings? They should be wearing tricorn hats and revolutionary war outfits like a true spontaneous voice of the real ‘Muricans patriotic movement.
