    Now is the Time to come back together and express our readiness for change.

    In solidarity,
    Troy Lush, Rae Abilaeh, MonaLisa Wallace and Magalie B. Marcil

    If you're interested please send an email to Magalie at m@dancingwithoutborders.org. Thank you!

    WHY THIS MASS OCCUPY ACTION?
    * Corporations are NOT people, Money is NOT speech. January 20 is the eve of the anniversary of the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling for corporate personhood.
    * To expose how Wall St. operates in our midst attacking our communities, homes, education, environment, democracy, livelihood, and well being.
    * To broaden, deepen, mobilize, and assert the people power of the occupy-99% movement and allies.
    * To contribute to ongoing community fights for economic justice against banks and corporations.
    * To build a broad-based strategic mass movement of the 99% in SF, the Bay Area, California, and the region.

    Greetings Dance warriors!
    We'll be on a mission tomorrow and it's going to be a memorable! Rain or shine, we'll be there, sharing the power of our voice, our vision, our hearts and our bodies. Nothing like this has happened in SF since 2003. Join us with your great spirit, warm clothes and dry gear. We strongly recommend that you take BART so we can all travel together.
    Magalie, Ben, Troy, MonaLisa and Rae
    MORNING ARRIVAL
    11am SHARP: Final rehearsal starts NEW LOCATION: St. Patrick Church in SOMA. 756 Mission between 3rd and 4th Street SF

    Near by Bart stations: Montgomery and Powell.
    Please be on time. We recommend you arrive by 10:30AM to stretch out and settle in.
    NOTE: we'll be walking 15 min. to our performance space. You can also take the bus #8 which goes directly to our destination ($2 ticket).
    First Performance @ noon: Financial District - 555 California, SF.

    Second Performance @ 5PM-- @ JUSTIN HERMAN PLAZA right before the march.
    AFTERNOON MEETING AT 4:30pm at the statue located on the middle side walk facing the ferry building (where we performed on Nov. 19). Embarcadero Bart station is near.

    PLEASE BE ON TIME.

    WHAT TO BRING
    * Bring warm clothes and rain gear.
    * Wear casual clothes (no tribal funky please).
    * Consider having an umbrella - keeping you dry!
    * What you wear will be your bill board - be creative! More about this below.
    * Bring snacks & water
    * Have free time in between the performances? Join the other exciting actions planned for Occupy Wall Street West - see www.occupywallstwest.org.
    NB - We'll have assigned people to look after your bags while dancing!
    You will wear your Billboard
    Make a creative sign on your jacket that shares a striking fact or figure about what's wrong with our system or share a solution - whatever feels most true to you.
    Ex: Hug your Banker, then close your account. Or, Go green NOT Greed.
    What to write / paint on:
    Duck tape, a piece of fabric, foam core or a brown bag.
    We'll have safety pins for you to put on your jacket.
    * If you can't make a sign, no worries. We'll have a few extras for you.
    THANKS TO ALL OF OUR PARTNERS
    This action is coming together with the committed and passionate work of an incredible team, inspired by OWS. So much gratitude for everyone involved!

    I regretfully am unable to attend today's actions in SF : (

    But I would love to see video of the flash mob as soon as it's available. This type of action moves me so deeply, and I want to share it with the world!

    Keep up the fantastic work!
