The Occupy Toronto Movement is not about left or right. It is about the unscrupulous behaviours that are currently taking place in our Canadian Government system, and in the ranks of financial bureaucracy. The more you learn about it, the more effective you become in our fight against Government corruptions. Forget what you’ve been told, and open your eyes, ears, and open your minds, 99%....

bcbIV: The Time Has Come →
bcbiv: People of the world. It has come. Our defining moment of defiance. You have all dreamed of the day where we can stand up as free men and women, unoppressed by a gluttonous and greedy 1%. Their lust for power and wealth is their undoing. Their disregard for human and natural life will be their downfall. They are ignorant to the preciousness of life, the order of nature, and complete...
Looking for some Tumblr people to work on two...
Hey Tumblr, @bcbiv here. I am in need of some tumblr users who live in or around Toronto that want to work with me to spread the message of Occupy Toronto through the Tumblrverse. We’d be focusing mostly on visual media, announcing events and official announcements from the movement and some good writing about the movement. It isn’t a place for us to spout our personal beliefs, we...

A personal message from Selena Flood - BE PREPARED
As people are preparing and organizing for occupations across North America, I hope that I may offer some information that will help deal with what could transpire, especially to my friends who are attending Occupy Toronto. My experience at last year’s G20 in Toronto was first one of a person curious about the event, to jumping into a team with my two best friends and an experienced street...
ikachak asked: Hey mate, I'm wandering on the 15th where should I go to protest or when/where is that going to be?
wwwoccupytoca asked: Will you guys ever spread to Manitoba?
eatmywisdom asked: The system is broken and I appreciate your desire to fix it. However, I hesitate to throw my hat in the ring of any movement, no matter how just their core principles, without first knowing what they aspire to accomplish. What is your end game? I have little interest in a 'military adventurism' style of occupation lacking an exit strategy. A collective voice is a powerful tool if it...
flymyass-deactivated20120608 asked: Hey I was wondering if you have to make it to the general assembly to take part, I can't make it on the 7th.

An Announcement to The General Assembly of...
Occupiers, We had a great turn out of Occupiers last night to our first General Assembly. It ran fairly informal but we had some great discussion and ideas thrown out. One amazing thing I have been seeing is that people come to these meetings, share what they are doing and work with the rest of us to establish our goals as well! So you all want an update on where the Occupation stands. Well...

mclobsters-deactivated20120919 asked: Thanks for answering my question! If I lived in Toronto, and could get there tonight, and I'd be there for the general assembly. However, I'm confused - I thought the original plan was to protest on Saturday 15th, already? You said this: However, because of the recent concern about our schedule, we will be opening the discussion to the idea of civil action on the 15th, at least to make...
mclobsters-deactivated20120919 asked: Hey, I have a question - why are we occupying Toronto on a Saturday? There's no trading on bay street and barely anyone in the exchange towers, to my understanding....wouldn't that make protesting on a Saturday somewhat pointless?

The First Three Days (Schedule)
The inherent nature of a movement like this does not strictly allow organizers such as myself much flexibility in the manifestation of a schedule. The first three days are what will dictate the scheduling for the rest of this event. That being said it is crucial that within these first three days we are using these scheduled slots for General Assembly to put together the most intellectual...
