Occupy City Commission rallies December 12

Danielle Fountain reported to Historic City News that the local Occupy St Augustine group would hold a meeting Monday, December 12, at 3:00 p.m. in front of City Hall and the Lightner Museum, located at 75 King Street in St. Augustine.

During the Florida People’s Working Convention being held in Orlando over the weekend of December 9th, Fountain says that Resolutions will be developed for the organization which will be published locally for a review and vote.

“Those resolutions agreed upon by the local Occupations in Florida will be presented to the state legislature in Tallahassee in January,” Fountain said. “We will also vote on local resolutions which will be presented to city and county commissioners. We are the 99%”

During the December 12th meeting, being referred to by its organizers as “Occupy City Commission”, promises “all will have a chance to speak”.

The St Augustine City Commission is holding a 3:30 p.m. 450th Commemoration Workshop then convenes its regular business meeting at 5:00 p.m. in the Alcazar Room on the first floor of the same building.

Fountain says that music by local musicians will be provided.
