Time to make some GlobalNoise!
Thanks to: http://the2012scenario.com
Join us in making noise for a better world! Activists involved in the
Indignato, Occupy, and #yosoy132, movements have begun a campaign to
a worldwide cacerolazo, or casserole march, on Saturday, October 13th,
2012. The hope is that local Occupations and Collectives will take up
the call to march, using the method of a casserole march to highlight
whatever issues are the most important to their local community.
Historically, banging on a pot has been a universally understood means to gain attention. The casserole march
has its origins as a means to call attention to problems facing the
community that the power structure is not addressing, using a method
that is hard to ignore. In the past, this form of activism has been used
to draw attention to education reform, starvation, government
corruption, inequality in resources, and more.
It has been revived recently in the international Occupy and Spanish
Indignatos movements, and most notably by the Student movement in
Canada. Since then, it has spread worldwide. It is from these historical
references and recent examples that the idea of a coordinated worldwide
cacerolazo emerged. An international showing of frustration and unrest
on a global scale that would be hard to ignore. A GlobalNoise.
Get involved now with the planning to make some noise for social justice!
