Thousands Coming in for NATO Need Housing! Occupy Needs Spaces!

Tags: 

Occupy Chicago needs housing for NATO protestors! Those who need housing are quickly out-numbering our volunteered host spaces. Smaller spaces and larger ones are both good, but what we really need is LARGER SPACES (25+, 100+, etc. people).

People are coming from all over the world to let their dissent on NATO be known: "We do not accept the violence of this imperialist war machine! Schools and hospitals, not bombs and drones! Do not turn Chicago into a police state!" Regardless their reasons these peaceful protestors need a place to rest their head; somewhere to stay out of the cold and the rain, and away from police who will throw them in jail simply for trying to sleep on public land.

Protestors staying with hosts will be expected to follow the Occupy Chicago NATO Housing Princicples which include 1) Leave no trace. 2) Respect your host 3) No drugs or alcohol at your host location 4) No loud noise levels. Occupy Chicago wlll provice representatives at larger spaces to make sure these principles are followed and that host locations are kept peaceful and safe.
