Rally by the 99% in Support of the Occupy Movement Set for Tuesday


The demonstration will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Woodstock.

Woodstock—A Rally by the 99% of McHenry County in support of the Occupy Movement will be held on Tuesday, November 15 from 5 to 6:30 PM in front of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Woodstock at the corner of Dean and South Streets.  The rally is sponsored by the church’s Social Justice Committee

The Rally will also collect supplies urgently needed by Occupy Chicago as it moves into the winter months.
“We have been very encouraged by the response we have had from the community,” said Patrick Murfin, coordinator of the event for the Committee.
Unitarian Universalist congregations around the country and related organizations like the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the Standing on the Side of Love campaign have been supportive of the spreading movement inspired by Occupy Chicago.
The event is open to all members of the 99% who support the movement.
“Participants are invited to make a sign telling how they are members of the 99%—the  great majority of Americans who have been  left behind as the top 1% amasses unheard of wealth,” Murfin said.
Participants are also asked to bring supplies for Occupy Chicago.  Among the items needed are warm winter clothing, mittens and gloves, wool socks, caps, scarves, sleeping bags, blankets, and non perishable food items.  A complete list of items needed is available upon request.
“We ask donors to only bring items to the Church during the rally and not at other times,” Murfin said.  “If someone has a donation but can’t attend the rally, they can contact me and I will try to arrange a pick-up.

  1. Why even give this bunch of nincompoops space on your blog. Didn’t you read all the negative remarks about this cult last time?

  2. How are all these losers being supported ? By wealthy relatives and friends, hope for a very cold winter and they are frozen out. And now this church wants donations for these misfits. This country was made great and now they want to tear it down because hard workers, unlike these protestors made it great. They worked for their millions and deserve them.

  3. Oh come on! It’s alright with you people when the Tea Party protests but you can’t handle when people of a different belief do? Are you for real?!?! Hypocritical much?

    Btw, it’s ignorant to believe that the OWS protesters are one specific age, economic status or race. Many of the protesters are employed, some are business owners, some are students, some are black, some are white, some are hispanic, some are young, some are elderly, some are parents, some are married, some are single…
