About

Occupy Ventura is a growing movement that is reaching out to people like you, the “99%”. We are waiters, receptionists, nurses, students, teachers, law enforcement, the unemployed, firefighters, tradespeople, small business owners, and others from various walks of life. We are striving to empower the poor, working, and middle classes to take peaceful actions and be heard by the “1%”–in other words, those with power in our society. This includes our politicians and large corporations who are reaping the benefits of our support and work with little consideration for our needs.

The “Occupy” movement was inspired by world events in which people have called for responsive government, economic reforms, and justice for all. The first American “Occupy”–Occupy Wall Street–was initiated on September 17 near Wall Street in New York City. Since then the movement has spread, and it is gaining support in cities all over the country.

Occupy Ventura is inspired by both the global and national movements, seeking to spread awareness, increase political participation, and to peacefully insist of the power brokers that the needs of The People must be met. We are non-partisan, but seek inclusive, progressive solutions to the problems that burden our communities.
