Well, somebody didn’t get any sleep last night, and OccupyMissoula has a new website up. It’s chock full of information, links and resources so go check it out!

And OccupyMissoula will be having its first GA on saturday. The GA has been moved to the fish sculptures at Caras Park, as the XXX’s at the Farmer’s Market was going to be too small, due to the anticipated large assembly. Here’s a note about the change:

To clarify how this came about. The initial planners who are just trying to get things moving initially picked the xxxx’s because of the high visibility on what is the main street of town. We are very happy that it is likely that will be too small of a space for everyone. and the goal is in no way to obstruct the circle square market. SO, the 99% won’t fit at the xxxx’s, and perhaps it is inappropriate in general. We hear that, and will be moving the GA to fish sculpture next to the river market, so we won’t interfere with traffic by overflowing into the streets. Again I want to stress that these decision was only made to get the ball rolling and get everyone in one place so we could reach consensus on a Occupy Missoula location. Please bring your ideas to the general assembly and they will be heard.

There also will be a planning meeting on thursday at 4pm at Break Expresso:

Missoula activists and family–please meet at Break Expresso, 4pm this Thursday. We need your creative minds to prepare for a General Assembly in Missoula. The invite is including everyone–artists, veterans, writers, politicians, freedom-fighters, journalists, concerned parents, houseless, legislators–if you feel you have something to contribute to a Missoula General Assembly and wished to be involved in the planning of such…get thee forthwith–to the Break. If you are a seasoned activist, trained facilitator or legal expert–we would like to leverage your experience, as well, although you would only be a person with an opinion.

 And how can we forget our NYC #OccupyWallStreet compatriots who are putting on a huge demonstration today? Thousands marched from Foley Square to the Financial District. The march represents the joining of over 40 union and community organizations in the movement. As material becomes available, I’ll post it up. Until then, join the LiveStream.
