This is a re-post from Occupy Boston to help spread the word on peaceful protesting:
Three days of mud and weather haven’t deterred approximately 100 demonstrators camped in Dewey Square from staying put indefinitely. Occupy Boston, which started on Friday evening, Sept. 30, part of a national occupation movement to that is sweeping the country’s major cities (including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles), attempting to bring attention to the fact that 99% of American citizens do not feel their views represented by their government.
On Monday, October 3, Occupy Boston delivered a simple, symbolic letter to the Massachusetts Statehouse and Bank of America:
All Cities, USA
Get out of our government. We want our country back.
Because there has been conflicting accounts in the press, we’d like to clarify our reason for occupying downtown Boston. There is no one single issue or demand that summarizes Occupy Boston or the Occupy movement. Occupiers facilitate conversation, discussion and debate around the issue of corporate influence on politics in an attempt to overcome the cynicism and corruption running rampant in this country.
