Occupy Ottawa planning Global Day of Action November 17

OTTAWA, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - (Unceded Algonquin Land) - Occupy Ottawa and allies are joining a "Global Day of Action" on November 17th to mark two months since Occupy Wall Street began in Manhattan. Participants are being asked to meet at Confederation Park (Elgin and Laurier) at 11 am and participate in a number of different events.

"We will be acting to promote economic and social justice" said Arun Smith, an Occupy Ottawa protester.

Protesters will be discussing places to demonstrate, including Parliament Hill. Events planned for the 17th include a labour rally and barbeque in support of Novotel workers at noon as well as a teach-in at Carleton University at 3 pm.

After the demonstrations, a meal will be provided by the Food committee at Confederation Park.

"For too long, we've been divided as the rich have become richer and as power has become increasingly concentrated in the hands of the few" said Smith.

"Occupy Ottawa stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and other peaceful protests that are resisting the greed that is destroying our world. You can't evict an idea whose time has come."
