In this FREE 3-hour seminar, presenters will speak on topics of the economy, the history of non-violent direct action and future action within the Occupy movement.  Dialogue and participation from all attendees is encouraged in the spirit of Occupy, and the purpose of this event is to meet, share knowledge and ideas.  Hosted by Occupy Melbourne Florida through the MoveOn.org 99% Spring training campaign. 


This training/seminar will focus on three areas:

•The economy. We will tell the story of our current economy: how we got here, who is responsible and what we can do about it. We will talk about what a new economic vision could look like that represents the values of the 99%.

•Non-violent direct action. Knowing our movement history will help us tell the current story of the 99%. There is no better way to take action then by learning what social justice movements have done in the past. We have a rich history to draw from that can guide us as we take action this spring.

•Take action. We'll learn how to take action by developing and preparing for tactics that will help build our movement's power. We will then use this information to take action on our own campaigns to win change.


Registration is required and space is limited. To register, please go to: http://civic.moveon.org/event/99spring/127941
