Occupy Federal Reserve Boston Announces Solidarity With Occupy Boston

The National End the Fed contingent in Boston met at the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston yesterday. This site happens to be at the same site as Occupy Boston.

The Occupy Federal Reserve Boston group expressed concern that the national End the Fed rally was antagonistic toward Occupy, being promoted to co-opt Occupy, rather than coordinate with them. Therefore, Occupy Federal Reserve Boston publicly announced it's solidarity with Occupy Boston, and urges that other Occupy Federal Reserve groups join us in the solidarity. We seek non-partisan cooperation on the issues, to ensure maximum participation of the 99%. We seek to join forces to promote a common agenda that will pave the way for future joint action.

To commemorate our new found alliance, a member of Occupy Fed led a march through the streets of Boston, comprising of both Occupy Fed and Occupy Boston, and in the spirit of both movements. This march ended at the Federal Reserve Bank where we sat in protest and chanted anti Fed slogans. Had it been just Occupy Fed, such a march would have been anemic and unsuccessful, we almost decided to cancel our End the Fed march. But together we filled the streets and impeded traffic. The End the Fed message is amplified, not diminished by the Occupy movement.

Armies of the same nation don't have to be in full agreement with one another to benefit each other.

Even differing nations fighting for the same cause.

Very good strategy and principle: open hearts

promoting freedom and bringing people together.

We unite we win, we allow ourselves to be divided

we fail.

Ron Paul on Occupy Wall Street:
“But I think that the majority of them think government is the problem and taxes are too high and they know that the Federal Reserve plays a role in this, which, of course, is something I agree with.”
