Come help bring the Occupy Wall Street movement to the Peninsula!
Redwood City's government has failed to lead on issues of importance. They keepnig favor with corporations and developers over people and the environment by refusing to take a stand on the proposed developments at the Cargill Salt Pond site. They refused to take a stand for healthcare access for women and poor people and allowed a handful of out-of-town activists to successfully stop the proposed Planned Parenthood clinic on El Camino Real.
Redwood City's government is a local example of a national problem: the people are ignored in favor of outside interests whose money and underhanded tactics give them undue influence. Occupy Redwood City is about putting the people back into politics, come join us! Bring your ideas, your energy, and your creative spirit. It is up to the residents of RWC to shape what Occupy Redwood City will look like!
