Ride the Rails
4:00 PM at Camp Charlie
Come Ride the Rails with us to spread the word to Boston’s subway riders about Camp Charlie, the Occupy MBTA campaign, and the broader Occupy Boston community. We’ll be meeting at Camp Charlie at 4:00 PM for a brief training, after which we’ll be setting out in teams to connect with Boston’s rush-hour commuters and recruit them for the movement through speaking, leafleting, and distributing copies of the Boston Occupier. Let’s seize the unique opportunity to engage thousands of T commuters about the issues that could immediately impact them — the cuts, hikes, and layoffs — as well as the deeper issues that they raise for us all. See you there!
Race and Class Inequality: Fighting for a People’s T
6:15 pm at Camp Charlie
The recent fare hikes and proposed service cuts are only the most recent effort to divide public transit across race and class lines. Join us for a crash course on the history of the T — how urban planning choices changed its shape and layout, and how those choices affect the demographics it serves.
8:30 pm at Camp Charlie
Join Occupy Boston Queer Trans DA for a sign-making in preparation for this Sunday’s Mass Tea Party’s Patriot’s Day Rally. Help us greet Santorum and Scott Lively in style!Occupy Slumber Party!
