AND
*
*
*DECEMBER 3 UNITY + COMMUNITY RALLY  -- THE 99% SPEAK OUT!*

Also on December 3, occupiers, activists, and community members will be
holding a *distributed march and rally *across Boston, *starting in
neighborhoods across the city and culminating with a speak-out in Copley
Square*.   It's a chance for the wider Boston community to meet the 99
percent, and for the 99 percent to organize visibly around ALL the issues
that matter to us.

We need your help!*  The basic idea:  from 10-12, everyone takes a street
corner. *  Whatever your issue is -- Economy, politics, activism, tar
sands, school closings, wage cuts, supercommittee cuts, the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan, war coming to Iran, the eviction of OWS, s-comm, corporate
welfare -- take a street corner and tell people why you're here!    *After
that, we'll all gather in Copley Square from 1-4 p.m. for a speak-out and
celebration of the 99 percent.*

Within Occupy Boston, we have an incredibly diverse set of talents, issues,
and interests.   *Whatever it is that you do that makes the movement great,
consider  bringing it to the wider community!*  It could be anything --
hosting a puppet show, running a civil disobedience training, canvassing on
a particular issue, distributing food or clothing, hosting an off-site
teach-in, building a tiny house on a random street corner in Boston.

They say our differences will divide us.   They say we don't have concrete
issues, claims, or goals.   Join us on December 3 for a day of celebration,
conversation and change  --  bring those issues to the square to make our
voices heard.
*
*Please share widely, discuss with your friends, bring it to your
university or school and consider getting involved!  Please forward widely.*

Distributed rallies across Boston:   December 3 from 10-12 p.m.
