3 things you may not know about Occupy Toronto

I made a return visit (have now been down on Day Three and Day Eight) to Occupy Toronto yesterday, and am happy to report that spirits in the camp are strong and there's more music than ever. I sat in on about five different jams within a couple of hours and very much enjoyed the sessions.

Props to young actor / rapper Sami Sayn for making the trip down to St. James Park with me. Sam was hung over from a weekend in Niagara Falls so wasn't able to spit more than a few low-volume verses before his raps faded, however it is the thought that counts and the people of Occupy TO appreciated the urban flow and the witty humour.

All in all a great day at the park, hoping to be back there real soon!

HERE are the THREE THINGS YOU DID NOT KNOW about Occupy Toronto:

1.YOU are welcome there. Regardless of your age, sex, creed or ethnicity, come on down!!! You will find the people very hospitable, and willing to answer any questions you may have about the occupation (it is true that having an occupation is good for your health!).

2. The Occupy Together movement IS highly relevant to Canada and Canadians. Even though we are not in the dire straits of many other nations, the social network is being eroded in Canada and the recent majority given to the PCs will increase the backsliding. Canadians are respected globally and it is crucial we have a strong voice in this new worldwide movement.

3.The protesters DO KNOW what they want, and it is an end to a globalized society that treats corporations and the super-wealthy as above the law, and a beginning to a more cooperative, human-focused world. The issues may vary from one encampment to another, and this is a global movement (more than 1,000 cities, 82 countries), so there is room for everybody.

I encourage all Torontonians and GTA residents to visit the occupation, and if you are a musician, bring your instrument!!!
