OCCUPY CONWAY ORGANIZER HOPES FOR BIG TURNOUT SUNDAY

by Christian Mower on December 2, 2011

THE ORGANIZER OF THIS WEEKEND’S OCCUPY CONWAY RALLY HOPES FOR A LARGE TURNOUT IN CONWAY TO “DRAW ATTENTION TO THE CORRUPTING POWER OF ‘BIG MONEY’ ON THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS.”

ANDY DAVIS – THE CO-DIRECTOR OF THE WORLD FELLOWSHIP CENTER IN ALBANY – SAYS SUNDAY’S RALLY WILL BE THE FOURTH “ACTION” IN CONWAY AFTER TWO RALLIES IN NOVEMBER AND AN EFFORT IN NORTH CONWAY VILLAGE ON BLACK FRIDAY TO HAND OUT FLYERS TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO SHOP AT LOCAL BUSINESSES.

ORGANIZERS INVITE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO BRING A SIGN AND GATHER AT 1 P.M. SUNDAY AT THE CONWAY VILLAGE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE INFORMATION BOOTH ON ROUTE 16.

THE EVENT WILL LAST ABOUT AN HOUR AND AN INDOOR MEETING WILL FOLLOW.

DAVIS EXPECTS VISITORS FROM OTHER OCCUPY NEW HAMPSHIRE LOCATIONS – INCLUDING LITTLETON, CONCORD AND MANCHESTER – TO JOIN THE RALLY IN CONWAY.

THE OCCUPY CONWAY GROUP IS AFFILIATED WITH OCCUPY WALL STREET, DESCRIBED BY DAVIS AS A “LEADERLESS, PEOPLE-POWERED MOVEMENT THAT STARTED SEPTEMBER 17TH IN NEW YORK CITY’S FINANCIAL DISTRICT, INSPIRING RELATED ACTIONS THAT HAVE SPREAD TO MORE THAN 100 U.S. CITIES AND MORE THAN 1,500 CITIES AROUND THE WORLD.”

DAVIS SAYS THE MOVEMENT HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER PEOPLE OF MANY POLITICAL PERSUASIONS AROUND COMMON CONCERNS ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND “THE CORRODING EFFECT OF BIG BANKS AND MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS ON DEMOCRACY.”
