Help Occupiers Get to Philadelphia for the National Gathering

June 18, 2012

The General Assembly endorsed the National Gathering that’s occurring in Philadelphia this summer. Remi has been trying to arrange transportation for over a week now, and just heard back from the caravan that they are operating over budget. To address this, he created a wepay account that would go towards getting people across the US to Philadelphia.

Here’s the link to the wepay account:

NATO PROTESTS: Get on the Bus to Chicago! May 14/15

May 6, 2012


 Because understanding NATO is first and foremost, please visit here: to learn all about this incredibly corrupt alliance that continues to “intervene” in poor parts of the world only to take their resources, kill or depose leaders with integrity and replace them with corrupt leaders.


99Solidarity has begun sending email updates to occupiers signing up for the Chicago Bus Trips. Please be sure to add to your address book to ensure the updates do not get filed as spam.

99% solidarity is excited to participate in nonviolent direct actions in Chicago from May 18 to 22, 2012. We have secured buses to bring people to these actions from several U.S cities.

We are currently working on the travel schedule, agenda and other important details of this trip. We will be contacting you with updated information shortly. For now here are a few updates:

  • The Bus trip is free
  • 50 people from each city must sign up and board the bus for the trip take place. If a city has less then 50 sign ups, then we may have to cancel the bus for that city.
  • Meals will be provided on board the bus to and from Chicago
  • We are working on housing and meals while in Chicago

There are several direct actions and events that we will participate in while in Chicago including:

Please visit often to get the most up to date information and be sure to invite your friends and fellow occupiers to join you on this exciting, historic trip.

In addition, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter: @99solidarity

Currently, a bus (or more) will be leaving from Portland in time to arrive in Chicago on May 17.

They’re also leaving from these cities:

  • New York City
  • Washington DC
  • Boston, MA
  • Providence, RI
  • Burlington, VT
  • Salem, NH
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Oakland CA
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • San Francisco, CA


So tell your friends and get on the bus!

They do have a voluntary pledge of Non-violence and Mutual Respect and a voluntary Action Agreement. A word of warning, if you go to register for the bus, the action agreement loses its “voluntary-ness”.

There’s also the Chicago Principles which everyone in the movement should familiarize themselves with.

The Chicago Principals

  • Our solidarity will be based on respect for a political diversity within the struggle for social, economic and environmental justice. As individuals and groups, we may choose to engage in a diversity of tactics and plans of action but are committed to treating each other with respect and working towards a common goal of peace and justice.
  • As we plan our actions and tactics, we will take care to maintain appropriate separations of time and space between divergent tactics.
  • We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance, infiltration, disruption, limiting our action to “free speech zones,” and violence, or attempts to divide our movement through the conscious creation of divisions regarding tactics, organization, strategies, and alliances.
  • Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events.
