“We the People of Carbondale and Southern Illinois have chosen to Occupy Carbondale to take a stand against the corporate takeover of our democracy.“
— Official Statement of Occupy Carbondale on Oct 15, 2011
Occupy Carbondale is currently located at the Big Muddy Independent Media Center on 214 N Washington St.
Welcome to OCCUPY CARBONDALE, a hub for all of the events and dialog springing up in Carbondale and throughout Southern Illinois in solidarity with Occupy Wall St. and Occupy STL. As we followed the news on Facebook, Twitter, and the various live feeds across the internet, we felt compelled to build a site that would help bring this spirit of democracy in action to Carbondale, Southern Illinois. We hope to provide people with information about events that are organizing, ongoing, and building across the U.S. as we, the 99%, take action against the greed and corruption of the 1%.
We will try our best to provide you with the most accurate information possible. However, we are just a few volunteers and errors are bound to occur. Please be patient as we get this site off the ground and please contact us if you have any info on new events, corrections, or suggestions for this site. You can contact us at info[at]occupycarbondale[dot]org.
