Occupy Kelowna Joins the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement

Occupy Kelowna Joins the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement
  • 1 of 5

Even my small city got on board with Occupy Canada. Crisp fall air and sunny skies welcomed a couple hundred demonstrators gathered in Kelowna’s Kerry Park to call for an end to economic inequality, environmental destruction and corporate greed.

They came to be part of an international movement in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street. British Columbia was well represented, with protests in Vancouver, Nanaimo, Courtenay, Nelson, Kamloops, Duncan and Kelowna. Others gathered in towns across the country, including Montreal, Halifax, Fredericton, Moncton, Guelph, Windsor, Kingston and London.

Many were carrying signs. Daniel Jesson came because “I was inspired by the people willing to come here.” He had followed the protests in New York. “Seeing ours,” he said, “I had to be part of it.”

You have done the research Emanuel. The cabal knows this gig is up. How this cycle of creation comes to a close is up to each one of us. We now face our own extinction.

An eye for an eye blinds all. Negativity and fear blind Light in us, our core essence called many names including Consciousness, God, Spirit, Allah, Yahweh, The Oneness, which is unconditional love, and only true Power to lift us from the dark matrix we ALL allowed, we all own and we are response-able to bring to rest, through the heart.

It is time to awaken inside out, unite as one global mind and heart, and shine Light of new information, new awareness about what we truly are, and why we are really here, in order to bring darkness to rest. I interview new edge scientists, physicists, doctors, EVOLutionaries weekly on Align Shine Prosper Inner Net Radio for EVOLving people, for listeners to raise conscious awareness, go into our hearts and smooth this organic transition between worlds.

Dogon and Mayan indigenous people recently spoke to the world for the first time, to warn this tract of humanity to end negativity now.

Freedom to the peaceful. Do your own research, unite with people in your commUNITY, speak up peacefully, start a PETITION for media to release the truth. The world improves one person at a time. Each of us count more than we know. Blessings and love to all!

The occupy focus is misdirected. It is even more serious than you all think. The well established plan by the UN and WHO agenda 21 is an Elitist Illuminati ploy to exterminate 90 % of the worlds population by whatever means possible as long as most people don't notice it. They are succeeding with denaturation of food, GMO, pesticides, chemical pollution of all kinds in our air, water, etc, iatrogenic medical drugs and potentially fatal vaccines laden with toxic adjuvants and additives. HAARP, Chem trails and radioactive pollution and the forbidden high quality nutrition and supplemental support for compromised health The real dangers are out of sight and out of mind,you are continuously being indoctrinated and lied to.by the criminals in high places. We need to do much more than occupy, we need to get rid of those Banksters that have been robbing the masses for the last 200 years. Obama is a wolf in sheeps clothing and would sell all of you for a dime because he believes you are a pack of GOYIM useless eaters.

What is needed after this has run its course, and it will certainly run its course, is to concentrate on changing the system by which we are all governed, a system which has allowed these financial and physical catastrophes to occur on an all too regular basis, otherwise the effort put in by every one of these concerned citizens will be for naught, and it will be back to business as usual.
Government has always got to be the main focus of all demonstrations as these "elected" people will always try to hold onto the status quo, to the detriment of all others, the 99%.

I don't know what is the "part of this" at Kelowna, the message is not clear in Canada. If you have nothing to do, go ahead. or go back home to read some books which will helps.

Going to the second one in this area tomorrow. It's a great feeling to be a part of this!

Hi Gloria H.

This movement is ageless, classless, and unstoppable!

My 9 year old granddaughter and I watched Occupy Together Oct 15.11, and sent heart centered text messages from young and old to the world.

CBC reported on the 1% joining the 99% Occupy Together http://youtu.be/GSksCF-FMJ4

I perceive Occupy Together is a catalyst to shift this tract of humanity out of darkness, into Light of new information, new Self-realization, and a new unified world, as no tract of humans before, if we unite in our hearts. http://westandwiththe99percent.tumblr.com/

I'll go to the rallies, sign the petitions what ever I can. Liz, don't give up. The fact that you and I even showed our grey hair at the event says plenty to those who poo-poo the rallies as being just hippies and bored kids. We represent our fellow elders, those who can't drive, or stand or walk , but in their hearts, want to leave the world a better place too!

I have been on two Occupy Denver marches in the last two weeks. I was very impressed with the commitment of these young people.
I'm afraid I'm a bit too old to be more than a weekend warrior but I will do all I can to support this cause.
Reminds me of protesting the war in Veitnam and we all know the results of that movement.
