  • Call to Action!

    We’re Occupying Dewey Square Sunday at Noon to feed anyone hungry and make a statement about the end of the Eviction Moratorium. Bring Signs!

    On Thursday night the Supreme Court of the United States ended the Eviction Moratorium putting millions on the path to homelessness immediately. The CDC Eviction Moratorium was to be in effect until October 3rd.

    The United States Census reported that 3.6 million feel they will face evictions at the end of the eviction moratorium. In Massachusetts the Census estimates around 30,000 families feel they are at risk. The Census was only able to count a portion of the population. The actual number may be much higher.

    For many unemployment benefits may be running out soon. Those that are employed are only a couple paychecks away from being destitute.

    Join Us in Dewey Square Sunday at Noon! Bring Food, Bring Signs, Bring Drums, Bring Friends.

    Boston Rally to Stop Line 3

    TOMORROW: Wed. Aug. 25th, 2021 AT 6 PM EDT

     507 Jamaicaway, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

    Sponsored by: 350 Mass for Better Future, Massachusetts Peace Action, United American Indians of New England, 350 Mass Action, No Coal No Gas.

    Join us at Jamaica Pond at 6pm to rally in solidarity with the Indigenous-led movement against the construction of the Line 3 tar sands pipeline. We will be holding a rally and vigil to honor the wild rice, treaties, and ways of life that are being trampled by corporate greed. We will call on the Biden administration, our so-called “climate president,” to end its hypocrisy and use its power to #StopLine3.This event is part of nationwide day of action that includes events in Chicago, New York City, Washington D.C., and St. Paul!Directions: We will be gathering near the Jamaica Pond Boathouse, 507 Jamaicaway, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.Cover Photo from @Giniw Collective
    Some background:Construction of Enbridge Corporation’s Line 3 pipeline is in violation of official treaties from 1837, 1854, and 1855 — an illegal invasion and occupation of Anishinaabe land. The pipeline will inevitably contaminate wild rice beds, an important food that is sacred to the Anishinaabe people. The workers who construct the pipeline — living in man camps — solicit sex from minors and contribute to the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives, Women, and Two Spirit people.Indigenous leaders and water protectors have been brutalized by local police, hired by Enbridge, as they have tried to enforce treaty rights and resist construction. Nonviolent demonstrations have been met with rubber bullets, tear gas, non-lethal pain weapons, and much more. This is but a continuation of repressive settler-colonial policy on behalf of the government of the so-called United States against Indigenous people.Environmentally, the pipeline is a disaster. Enbridge pipelines have spilled over 800 times in 15 years, and the 300,000 people who live downstream of the Mississippi River are at risk. The Line 3 pipeline has already generated 28 frac-outs, where drilling fluid pollutes the rivers. The pipeline’s completion will double Minnesota’s carbon emissions, the equivalent of 50 coal-fired power plants. Tar sands oil, which it will carry, is not the future of energy infrastructure, but a desperate last-ditch effort by a corrupt, entrenched industry whose profit-seeking hurtles the planet and people towards disaster.Find out more here: https://linktr.ee/stopline3

    Henri Postpones Occupy Boston Picnic/DayCamp until Sunday August 29th.

    Occupy Boston is Postponing its Picnic/DayCamp for this Sunday, August 22, 2021. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Henri is on its way up the East Coast and is pretty much on track to reach Boston on Sunday according to forecasts at the moment. It’s been about 30 years since Boston has faced the direct impact of such a storm. Henri is currently sustaining 65mph winds and will bring heavy rain and flooding to the region, and is expected to reach Category 1 Hurricane status before making landfall in Boston.

    We ask that you review your family’s emergency plan, now before the emergency. Review how to contact one another, and who to contact if there is an emergency in your home, and where you will go. Make sure that you have candles, batteries and fresh water. Fill bathtub with water if needed. Fill up your auto’s fuel tank and make sure you have fuel for generators. Review insurance policies in the event of damage. Secure all outdoor things, so they don’t become projectiles. Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

    Weather permitting we will continue the Picnic/DayCamp next weekend, on Sunday, August 29th, 2021 in Dewey Square. At next weekends Picnic/DayCamp we are starting an Open Mic for musicians and speakers. Each of the Sunday Picnic/ DayCamp’s is a Potluck Picnic, and we are asking that people bring processed packaged foods that we can share and hand out to those that are hungry. Everyone is Welcome. Bring Food, Bring Signs, Bring Drums, Bring Friends, Bring Love.

    A Homecoming at Dewey!

    This weekend will mark the first Occupy Boston Activities in a long while. Sunday, August 15th, Occupy Boston is having a Picnic/DayCamp that begins at 12PM ET and will continue every Sunday through September 30th, the 10th Anniversary of Occupy Boston.

    Planning has been underway for the 10th Anniversary which is taking place September 30th. The Occupy Boston members planning, decided to get boots on the ground ASAP and wanted to do something creating positive social change in the process of getting reacquainted with our comrades, allies and Dewey Square. Planning has also begun at Occupy Wall Street and Occupy LA and a few others. There is a massive GA that Occupy Wall Street is planning on September 17th, the 10th Anniversary of OWS in Zuccotti Park. Occupy Boston and other Occupy’s will hold a GA at the same time. Occupy Boston will also hold another GA on September 30th where we will plan our next steps.

    We INVITE EVERYONE to come out to Dewey Square and Join Us this Sunday August 15th, 2021. This is just the begining of what will hopefully usher in changes we’ve all so long waited for. If you’re tired of waiting and are ready to do something, come on down to Dewey this Sunday at 12 noon. Yes, we are getting the band back together! We’re reorganizing Working Groups Now.

    The Sunday Picnic/DayCamp is a community driven event that will hopefully bring together community resources to help those in need. The Food portion of the event is ‘Potluck’, and we ask that people bring food and help us make sure everyone is fed! As the weeks go, more speakers, musicians, artists, organization spotlights and additional Actions will be added to the days events.
