3 YEARS LATER

DECEMBER 28, 2011 – the day the OCCUPY BELLINGHAM encampment was taken down by a Whatcom County militarized police force.  Four members of OCCUPY BELLINGHAM protested this intervention and were arrested, spending the night in jail and the next two years protesting these arrests.

WORKING BACKWARDS

The Bellingham Herald marked that day with photographs and you can view them here

The Herald also ran a story about OCCUPY ONE YEAR LATER that you can view here. 

Below is a video of the start of it all recorded on October 14, 2011.  It shows the incredible enthusiasm for change.

OCCUPY BELLINGHAM IS STILL HERE FULFILLING OUR MISSION TO:   “peacefully call out, expose and oppose the unregulated corporate and capitalist economic structure(s) that are derailing America’s Democracy, further oppressing our citizens and causing a collapse of the ecological life structure of the planet.”
