Global Casseroles Night in Solidarité with Québec in Over 50 Cities

Posted 11 years ago on May 30, 2012, 11:25 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

People hanging out apartment building windows with pots and pans

Tonight, in dozens of cities across North America and the world, the people are making themselves heard - not with their voices, but by banging pots and pans. At 8pm, thousands will take to their streets, parks, and neighborhoods to bang pots in solidarity with the ongoing fight for the right to education going on in Québec and all over. This simple, creative form of protest takes example from the Chilean cazerolazos and presents an easy, fun way to show solidarity with our shared struggle. From Vancouver to Halifax, from New York to Paris, from London to LA, our voices will ring out in a united clamor for justice.

At 8:00pm, grab a pot & a spoon, and bang away. Wherever you are, it doesn't matter if you're at home in the kitchen, or in flashmobs in the streets - our pots will send the unmistakable message amidst this crumbling economy, eroding access to education, repression of our rights, emergency laws, and ignorant politicians. We will be joined by thousands pouring out of their homes - students, parents, children, and grandparents. The noise we make is not to be seen as a nuisance - but an alarm to signal that something is deeply wrong here and across the land, and the people will not be silent about it.

Solidarity Actions are taking place TONIGHT at 8:00pm local time in over 50 cities - find yours in the list below. If you don't see your home town, then look no further than your kitchen!

Wow, Im proud of OWS keeping us informed about how our society will oneday erode and the people will take to the streets, and the police will stand behind the law which aligned itself with the 1 percent, throwing morals out as stated in law, things brought before a court can only be argued "upon the actual law and not upon any moral point of ground".

It could be on the list if you get out there tomorrow, and notify OWS before.
