The #OccupyHouston web site is very much a work in progress. I search for bits and sources of information every time I go to it, and sometimes find new sections or capabilities. What I try to do on this blog is consolidate and point out these pieces of information, and direct you to them. I also make small editing changes in an attempt to emphasize or clarify some details. Any errors or misinterpretations in that area are mine.

They’ve been busy bees down at Tranquility Park. Getting ready for the Halloween weekend appears to have really consumed the time they might otherwise have been dedicating to information updates. Tonight (Oct. 30), there is the HauntHouston Open Mic Night Party & Protest, from 5-8PM.

Now, it appears that the folks of  #OccupyHouston are catching up on some admin work and looking ahead, planning new protest demonstrations.

The OccupyHouston Divestment March will take place on Friday, November 4 from 9:00am – 12:30pm, with a tentatively scheduled guest appearance by renowned activist, commentator, donor and documentary film maker Michael Moore!

Details on the November 4th protest, as well as the minutes of the last several days, are posted after the jump.

There is a new “Upcoming Events” section on the right-hand side of #OccupyHouston’s Home Page. You have to scroll down a bit to see it. Some details are posted at the bottom, after the jump. Some of the on-site links there are ‘hot’; mine here are not. 

Details of the OccupyHouston Divestment March, and recent updates of General Assembly minutes are posted below the jump.

It is my intention for all links from OccupyHouston.org to be live. If they don’t work, it’s my  head-scratcher, and I apologize. Let me know.
