“Decolonize the Movement, Decolonize your Mind”

Decolonize to Liberate Occupy Boston Community Gathering
Monday, 2/27, 6p-9p at Christ Church, 0 Garden St. Cambridge (Harvard Sq.)

The Occupy Movement seeks to address the concerns of the 99%, to unify the
majority who are being exploited to benefit the richest of the rich.  But
if we are to build a broad movement towards a just society that works for
everyone, we must understand how this movement fits into a much older
movement for justice, one that has been ongoing for hundreds of years.

The Decolonize to Liberate Working Group is hosting a Community Gathering
of Occupy Boston on February 27th to help us connect and build together.
 Together, we will explore the history of this land and it’s people and how
the goals and roots of the movement are critically intertwined with the
ongoing struggles of indigenous people worldwide.

If you are a dedicated catalyst at Occupy Boston, a supporter, or just
curious or completely new to the movement, we invite you to please join us
for a unique community learning experience.  This will be a great
opportunity to connect, share food, words, and build.

The Decolonize to Liberate Working Group has been meeting since the early
days of Dewey Square, when it introduced the Statement of Solidarity with
Indigenous Peoples.  We are continuously working to help each other shed
the dominator ethos that came from colonialism, and to support the
transformational work of the Occupy Movement.

Please join us on Monday, February 27th at 6p to learn what it means to
“Decolonize Occupy” and how we can better create a global movement that
works for everyone.
