LONG BEACH, Nov. 11th// In solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, Occupiers from Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Pasadena will be Occupying the Blue and Red lines of the Metro on Saturday. They will be meeting at the 7th St. Metro station at 11:00 am.

If it is raining, the group will Occupy the Pershing Metro station. This event is both an opportunity to learn about the need to get the influence of money out of politics. It is also an opportunity for the Occupations to plan a larger coordinated event in one month to involve even more Occupations.
