Monday 4 June 2012, Olympia—the State decided to order removal of an effort by many Occupy Olympia people to establish shelter for a 24-hour emergency medical clinic, as well as a 24-hour public toilet. After being set up early Saturday morning, the shelter was deconstructed today, after 5pm. There are some photos posted on the OO Flickr page, as well as more information on the Twitter account. And keep a look out for another article by Marissa Luck on the Olympia Power and Light website. Over and Out, OO

The Olympia Unit for Community Health has returned to a location in downtown Olympia. For all the details, please navigate your web-browser in this direction: http://occupyolympia.org/celebration-occupy-olympia-med-tent-up-and-open-for-business/ some details include: "This morning at 6:30 am Occupy Olympia set up a 24 hour street clinic in a political protest. Come protest the lack of basic human rights given to people in our community. Water, restrooms and food are relatively inexpensive, and there is no excuse for budget cuts affecting social services to people in need.
Music starts at noon, Coffee Creek bus in tandem with Food Not Bombs will be serving food, come join us for a day of family friendly fun!"
There's also a Facebook Page here.
Rally immediately at the Capitol, Legislative Building, to protest the Senate Budget, passed late last night. The budget cuts human and environmental services, favors corporate power, and is a massive privatization effort.
Rally immediately. Please call people you know, and ask them to call people they know, and then head to the Capitol.
Legislators are on campus in party caucus.
Let them know that the 99% cannot afford a budget that supports corporate power—with cuts to human and environmental services!
There will also be opportunity to discuss this topic and plan more rallying activities at General Assembly tomorrow, Sunday, 1pm at Sylvester Park.
