We gather together as Occupy Santa Cruz in solidarity with the worldwide Occupy Movement. We are individuals committed to promoting justice. We have no leaders. We recognize the right of ALL voices to be heard: our diversity is a source of strength. We present a united front in our non-violent approach to addressing the problems we face and generating solutions beneficial to all. Please join us in creating a better world. Your support keeps us strong enough to face down the police, the weather, the media smears, and the realities of life in Santa Cruz. Thanks to the food, blankets, and medical supplies, your donations make it possible but thanks most of all for your PARTICIPATION in the movement to OCCUPY Santa Cruz! Thank you for supporting democracy in action!
