Nov. 6 at Occupy Arcata

There was a good general assembly tonight. We are very grateful for the delicious food from the Vets for Peace and Martha Divine. We have a lot of organizing planned for tomorrow. We are in our fourth week of occupying space in Arcata. We are grateful for the support we are getting from small business owners. Some of our organizers have put up a new Facebook page.
