The General Assembly of Occupy Tacoma came to group consensus to peacefully vacate Occupation park on Sunday, February 26, 2012. We wish to express our thanks to the citizens of Tacoma for all of their support for the park. We would also like to thank those members of the city council and the Tacoma Police Department who expressed their support and for their cooperation.
While the General Assembly has decided to vacate and will not provide funding for bail, we do respect the individual rights of anyone who may wish to remain past the official eviction time.
We would like to encourage anyone who has pictures, video or even just a fabulous story to submit your content for our upcoming Occupation Park memorial page.
Although we are vacating Occupation Park we are still Occupy Tacoma. As with other Occupies across the nation we anticipate an increase in local activism even without the constant vigil at park. Work Group meetings will continue as scheduled and another indoor meeting space is being sought for the Sunday night GAs.
We have several upcoming local events:
- February 29th: Occupy the Corporations
- March 10th: Occupy Your Dollars
- March 17th: Get the Money Out of Politics
