For a movement to be successful, we need to be more than spectators.
Occupy Frederick is a loose and all inclusive association of Frederick residents acting in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the hundreds of other Occupy movements across the nation and around the world. By building bonds of resistance we can stand up against the unethical influence of money over our democratic process.
The economic injustices we face are not limited to a marginal group of strangers in faraway cities. They are our neighbors facing foreclosure, our families crippled by medical bills and our friends saddled with insurmountable student debt.
Through the use of General Assemblies, teach-ins and direct action, we hope to create a real community dialogue here in Frederick where every voice can be heard.
This movement is too big to fail. #Occupy is not sustainable if it remains limited to our major cities. It needs to be present everywhere, in every community that is affected by the financial crisis and decades of policy that serves corporate interests over human needs.
We can’t afford to sit out this fight; join us in solidarity.
