on: October 12, 2011, 12:24

Hi all, I'm sending around the updated materials and some of the comments
that were gathered at the meeting. I've tried to incorporate most of the
feedback. It would be great if you can try to look this over as quickly as
possible so I can send updated versions to the large list early tomorrow for
feedback,

in solidarity and great work!!!

********MEDIA ADVISORY********

*Edmonton to Join Occupy Wall Street Protests on Global Day of Action*

* *

*Edmonton, AB –* On Saturday, October 15th Edmonton will join with over 1300
cities around the world in supporting a growing ‘Occupy Wall Street/Occupy
Together movement.’

The Occupy Edmonton group is concerned about how corporate interests are
infecting our political institutions and dictating public policy and are
decimating the environment. They are also concerned about a system that puts
the hunger for profits at all costs above the health and well being of our
communities.

Occupy Edmonton is united with groups and movements around the world that
want a system that works for, not against, the 99% of us.

*What: Occupy Edmonton Rally and March.*

*Who: *Concerned residents of Edmonton and surrounding communities.

*When: *Saturday, October 15th starting at 12:00 p.m.

I don't know if this will help that second paragraph... Wasn't sure how democracy would fit in behind environment in that sentence mentioned, I am probably off as to context. Changed the environment piece. Side note: Isn't movement and groups the same thing?

> The Occupy Edmonton group is concerned about the corporate interests that have infected our political institutions. This corporate greed is dictating public policy as the intrusion of corporation into government hinders democracy. The destruction and disregard of the environment is alarming to us. Occupy Edmonton is also concerned about a system that puts the greed for profit above the health and well being of our communities, at all costs.
