Occupy Asheville will hold a festive march and demonstration to celebrate the Ides of March, or Tyrannicide Day. On Thursday, March 15th, we will convene the Vance Monument at 3 pm .
Occupy Asheville recognizes the interrelated tyrannies that govern and control our lives. From the workplaces to the statehouses to our own homes, a web of oppression extends into nearly every facet of modern life. It is only by organizing and growing conscious of this fact that we will develop our society in an egalitarian direction. In honor of this, and on the date of the murder of Caesar, Occupy Asheville will hold a festive march to commemorate the struggle against oppression, against both great tyrannies and petty tyrants.
Occupy Asheville welcomes your energetic participation. Feel free to bring signs, themed costumes, banners, puppets, instruments and other props to the march.
Occupy Asheville is dedicated to liberating public space in peaceful protest and coordinating networks of resistance to corporate dominance with our sister cities across the nation and globe.
