Occupy event in San Miguel, Mexico
The Occupy Wall Street movement has come to San Miguel, Mexico. Assembling at 9 am Thursday, October 6th in front of San Miguel's MacDonalds, a group of about 50 local activists affirmed their solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street encampment in New York City. They formed Occupy Wall Street SMA, Mexico.
The group of 50 USians and residents of San Miguel, joined together and met with Ed Clancy at the U.S. Consul. There, he was presented with the Declaration of the Occupation of New York City, created by the General Assembly of Occupy Wall Street. This document lists grievances citizens have concerning many of the political, social, and economic policies and actions taken by our government and corporations.

On Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011 the Center for Global Justice held a Teach-in/Speak-out on the economic crisis. There were presentations on various aspects of the crisis, its causes and how to respond. Participants had opportunities to present views and share their experiences of how the crisis has affected them. All points of view were welcomed.
Bob Stone, one of the organizers, said, "The politicians have spoken, the pundits have been heard. Now it is time for We the People to express ourselves."
Occupy Wall Street SMA is in no danger of breaking Mexican law as all of our concerns are about U.S. actions. Do exercise your democratic and Constitutiona rights. Join us in our efforts to make a better, more democratic, and just United States of America.
