Its too late to put this to a vote at the General Assembly... so I'm proposing this here and now. I've got plenty of positive feedback from occupiers. I currently have possession of one large Occupy Santa Cruz banner..
Here are the details:
The official Gay Pride Parade submission entry ended on May 15. We will take up the rear at the end of the parade and follow in with the OSC banner, several of us COLORFUL OSC activists will represent. The Occupy music bike trailer is tentatively planning on joining us so we'll have music to dance to.
I encourage you to add whatever creative spin to this as you'd like to. GET AUTONOMOUS with us!! Let's have some fun in the sun.
This is one of Santa Cruz's funnest events and it'll be a hoot to be a part of it too. The parade is followed by a festival at the north end of pacific with live music, a beer garden, lots of booths and revelry. I personally love it!!
Our GA will take place very nearby at the Post Office steps at 2am so come down a few hours earlier and lets have fun and celebrate this beautiful brand of diversity.
THIS EVENT HAS NOT BEEN ENDORSED BY OCCUPY SANTA CRUZ AND THE USE OF THE NAME/BRAND IS BEING USED AUTONOMOUSLY BY BRENT ADAMS AND IS DUELY STATED IN THE TITLE OF THIS EVENT. PLEASE DIRECT ANY QUESTIONS AND/OR COMPLAINTS TO BRENT ADAMS. MUCHO LOVO. http://diversitycenter.org/programs/santa-cruz-glbtiq-pride/
