Version Of “Occupy Movement” Coming To Peru And Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on November 13, 2011

Inspired by the “Occupy Movement”, local activists called “We Are the 99%” will rally in Peru and Ottawa.

The group will collect can food Saturday from 11 until 3 at PADS Shelter in Peru and at Washington Square in Ottawa.  Organizer Twila Yednock of Ottawa says they’ll have phone lists and talking points for calling Congress.  She wants a jobs bill passed and an end to tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.

Illinois Valley Food Pantry in La Salle and the Community Food Basket in Ottawa will benefit from the canned goods.
