    Debt is a tie that binds the 99%. Occupy Boston Strike Debt present an afternoon of music, food, serious discussion and strategic resistance around the growing student debt bubble.

    Present your Student Debt Story

    by Joe Cugini for OB Strike Debt

    Hello Occupiers and friends.

    The Occupy Boston Strike debt group is holding an “Anti-Student Debt Event” at the Middle East Club in Cambridge, on Sat., April 6. There’ll be music, information, agitation– and we’d like a key part to be “True Student Debt Confessions”.. Do you have a tale about how you ended up under or unemployed and over the debt barrel? We bet a lot of you do. Would you like to get up on stage, get it off your chest and purge your needless guilt? Bring a prop or 2 if you like, such as suitcases full of dunning letters, or your “Chief Chicken Fryer” hat from KFC.

    Victims of student indebtedness of all ages and classes are welcome. Send us a note and tell us your story briefly, and we’ll slot you into our program. Contact us and get all info about the event @ strikedebt@lists.occupyboston.org YOU ARE NOT A LOAN !

    NLG Fundraiser – Friday March 15th

    Dear NLG Friends,

    I hope you all will be able to join us this coming Friday for a game of billiard and a reception to raise funds for the NLG Mass Defense Committee. For decades, the Committee has been providing essential services to Massachusetts activists – training in civil disobedience and legal observing, serving as Legal Observers, and representing those arrested at protests – and in order to maintain these services we need to obtain proper funding.

    Friday, March 15, 2013
    6:00 – 9:00 pm
    Jillian’s, 145 Ipswich St. Boston

    If you are interested in sponsoring the event ($99 or more) please contact me at 617-227-7335. We appreciate all support you can offer.

    All the best.
