Hi everyone. We hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, and we just wanted to let you know how thankful we all are for your continued support. Our little occupation is growing and evolving! Please see below for camp needs.
About 25-30 people attended our Black Friday Event at Meadowood Mall which included handing out flyers encouraging shoppers to buy local this holiday season.
At the GA today we discussed future actions and will be reaching out to students at UNR the next few weeks. We will be forming an official Occupy Reno club on campus this week. Stay tuned for updates.
