Veteran’s Day Ceremony – Friday, November 11, 2011
Occupy Missoula will voluntarily shut down during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Friday, November 11, 2011 in a show of support and solidarity for Veterans and guests attending a Veteran’s Day Celebration on the courthouse lawn.
The east side of the courthouse grounds are to be cleared by 9:00 a.m., Friday November 11, 2011.
The east side of the courthouse grounds, the side including the flag pole, is to be cleared of all tents, tarps, and personal items. In addition to the east side grounds, the courthouse main entry, steps and main sidewalk must be cleared. To clarify, the sidewalk to be cleared is the one leading to the main entrance to the courthouse, not the sidewalk with the porta-johns.
The Veterans will start their set up at 9:00 a.m.
The Veteran’s ceremony starts at 11:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m.
Occupy Missoula, in support of the Veterans, asks that everyone respect and honor this request.
There will be no passing out fliers, sign carrying or any pro-Occupy Missoula activities during these hours.
Many Veterans agree with what we are doing and the ideals for which we stand.
Thank you for your support. Hope to see you there.
