We’re excited to announce the first in our series of teach-ins on capitalism, what it is, and how it works. Our first event, Capitalism and You, will be held at the Vancouver Public Library on March 23rd. Are you curious about exactly what it is that we Occupiers mean when we say that we’re protesting against “capitalism?” Or maybe you are an Occupier, and want to gain a clearer understanding of how we all got into this mess, and what some strategies might be for getting ourselves out. How do all the diverse issues that the 99% are facing tie together, and what can we do about it? How are we all effected by our economic system, and how can we stand together to make it more just, equitable, and sustainable? Come on down to the VPL on March 23rd and let’s figure it out together!
