Occupy the Midwest Regional Conference
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 10am until Sun, Mar 18, 2012 5pm
Walnut St & S Memorial Dr
Mar 5, 2012

Please join Occupy movements from around the Midwest on March 15th, 2012 at 5pm CST under the Gateway Arch for the first meeting of the Midwest General Assembly! We have chosen this site as our first meeting spot as it symbolizes much of what we are fighting for. The site on which it now stands used to be low income and working family housing. It was taken from these families in order to build this monument. We invite you to meet there and propose that we rename this monument as the Gateway to Freedom!

The conference will last from March 15th-18th. During this time we will be commemorating the 6 month anniversary of the Occupy Movement with direct action. Additionally, our objectives for this gathering are to:

Establish regional communication avenues to organize action and the sharing of resources,

Share best practices and learn from each other on how we can be more effective in our individual occupations,

Establish a Midwest General Assembly that any city in our region can call on moving forward, and

Determine how we communicate and act in solidarity both regionally and nationally
