Excerpt below for 10/8:
Greetings from Occupied Houston! We’re standing strong at Eleanor Tinsley Park and show no signs of stopping! Here’s our current schedule for Occupation: Day 3.
- We’ll be holding General Assembly meetings at 12:00 noon and 7:00pm. All changes to how Occupy Houston operates, how it spreads it’s message, or even the message itself are decided here. Attend these and guide the revolution!
- There are logistics volunteer group meetings at 10:00am, 5:00pm, and 10:00pm. Logistics plans the nuts and bolts of our occupation, and need regular meetings to make sure the occupation’s wheels are well oiled. If you’ve not experienced Occupation Houston yet, want to stand with us and contribute to our occupation, but don’t know where to start then this is the place to be! Find them near the medics’ area.
- The facilitation volunteer group is meeting at 8:00am and 6:00pm to train people to run our General Assemblies. Meeting facilitators are invaluable to us, keep us on track, and make sure our assemblies stay productive.
We need all these group meetings to keep the occupation train on the track. Everyone is welcome to come to Eleanor Tinsley Park to stand with the 99%, tell your story, and help spread the word! STAND STRONG! Together we can erase the corruption that plagues our democracy!
Eleanor Tinsley Park is located between Allen Parkway and Memorial Way, just west of I-45. There is sparse parking along Allen Parkway and the park. However, the Houston Police Department has told us that you can park along the frontage road on the other side of Allen Parkway. There’s a crosswalk on Allen and Taft, a bit west of the park. There’s also parking on the other side of the park along Memorial Way.
The Metro stop at Memorial Way and Sawyer St. is just north of the park and is accessible by Metro route 50.
