Occupy Kelowna general assembly and rally

Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 14:00 to 15:45


Occupy Kelowna is a representation of the whole community. We are business owners, mothers, fathers, starting wage and career workers, union members,retirees, students and even council candidates past and future. We are the 99% of Kelowna citizens who feel unrepresented. We are the 80% that have not voted in years. We are part of the 70% who did not vote Harper in. We are awake and know now that ignoring the way the system works is never going to fix anything. We are the citizens that realize Einstein was right: "You cannot expect different results from the same actions".

What does Occupy Kelowna want?

Simply put; Social Justice.

We are here to get everyone engaged in the political process. We are here to help make democratic process the peoples voice. We are the only answer to a broken system.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
