December 3, 2011

CNSNews.com is reporting that SEIU is openly and directly organizing a series of #Occupy actions to take place in DC starting this Monday December 5th. (h/t @mperkins37)

The SEIU Local 1991, based out of Miami Gardens, Fla., is the contact organization for the weeklong event “to show Congress what democracy looks like, shine a light on corporate greed and human suffering it has caused, and demand justice for the 99 percent,” according to the draft itinerary.

“Take Back the Capitol will feature three full days of spirited actions, speak-outs, protests and entertainment,” the schedule says. Breakfast and dinner are listed every day of the protest.

“People’s Camp, Teach-Ins, Cultural Tent, Model Sharing” are on the agenda for Tuesday. Also that day, protesters are called on to “‘Occupy’ Congressional offices until closure” and to “Depart in TEAMS to VISIT Congress and seek commitments to unemployment insurance extension and jobs not cuts for the 99%.”

More to come on this…
