For anyone who lives in Saskatchewan, there will be Occupy Saskatoon and Occupy Regina rallies. Saskatoon’s is on October 15th, there’s a facebook page (facebook event here). Also found there is a twitter hash tag for the event, #OccupySaskatoon (found here) and there’s one for #OccupyRegina as well (found here). These are going hand in hand with other Occupy events around North America.
Here’s a bit of information from localyolk‘s tumblr:
So basically you can come to the university at 9:15 AM and support the issue that these students are trying to get the senate to discuss, which is corporations influencing the university(one of the head people of the senate has a bunch of shares of Cameco?). Apparently this issue is always pushed to the back of the meeting, and meetings usually run long so they never get to it. The students say if we have people in support of this issue needing to be discussed at the meeting they may choose to do it first, and even if they don’t they will feel an affect.
But if you cannot make that because of other commitments(or you were out too late last night ;] ) you can meet us in front of the Law building(which is beside the Arts building) at Noon. Then we march!
So, anyone who wishes to OccupySaskatoon or OccupyRegina, make sure to keep October 15th open.
