A flyer with all of the details of the OccupyCapitol event in Helena and OccupyMontana GA has been posted. Here is the flyer to download and pass around. It would be great if someone would print some up and hand them out at the GA tonight.
You also can leave a note on our forum about carpooling. My understanding is that some folks will meet at the court house lawn between 9 and 10 to ride-share.

Sunday October 30th 2011 10:00 Reflection/Talking Circle 12:00 Occupy Hill Park
OccupyHelana is a nonviolent movement for accountability in the United States government. email: firstname.lastname@example.org . We gather in solidarity with the ongoing protest in New York City, Occupy Wall Street, and the growing number of cities whose people will no longer sit back watching corporate and special interests run their government. We are citizens of the United States, and this country is ours. Our government is divided. We, the people, are united. We are the 99%.
