Protest Site Needs for Summer Heat Preparation

April 12, 2012 in Annoucements, Issues, Uncategorized

A call to ACTION for all OLR supporters.

On Sunday April 22, 2012, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., OLR will host at the protest site at 4th and Ferry in downtown Little Rock, a project get-together for all supporters of OLR to accomplish the task of making of the shading for the protest site for the summer months. This shading will consist of cammo-style netting (Occu-net).

We have already constructed one (1) loom form to make this netting, but we need to make a few more. to accomplish this, we need a few more supplies. they are as follows:
16 2″x4″x8′
2 lbs 16 penny nails
28 spools of (sisal rope)twine with a tensile strength of 75 lbs
Used sheets or other light material to tie netting for shade

This above list has a cost of aprox. $500.00

In anticipation of meeting this goal, we invite everyone to plan to attend on that Sunday the 22nd of April, so we can build those frames and get the Occu-Net up and functioning.

Also we would like to Bar-B-Que on that Sunday for everyone that is willing to help with this much needed project, so therefore, we would also need:
charcoal, stuff to bar-b-que, drinks, ice, paper plates, napkins, etc.

Projects that are also coming up in conjunction with OLR and the summer are:
A raised garden, Solar DE-hydrator, System to cool the Occu-dome, and an outdoor misting system.

Thanks in advance for any and all of your help with this, and all of our current projects. Please contact anyone at the protest site or you may call Tim at 501-860-2938. You may also contact us thru our Facebook pages for further details and, thanks for your participation with us at OLR.

                                            ALLEGED ARREST AT OCCUPY SITE
It was reported in many media outlets that an Occupier, William Kelley, was arrested at the protest site in Little Rock.

William Kelley, a member of Occupy Little Rock, was detained in the United States Post Office Parking lot next door to the

OLR site. He was not arrested at OLR. Video surveillance shows otherwise.
This alledged incident involving the arrest of Mr. Kelley does not involve and is not related to the occupy movement. This
occurred prior to Mr. Kelley joining OLR. We are awaiting further developments concerning this incident. He has been a valued
and trusted member of Occupy Little Rock. We support his constitutional rights, and due process.
