Phase 3: OWS "Human Float" (#44) and "We are the 99%" float (#99) –

Phase 3 coordinators :

Pasadena Activist David Cutter (dcutter@aceweb.com; Tele: 626.260.1615)

& Artists Janet & Matt Driggs (janet38@earthlink.net; Tele: 213.300.1421).

Sign assemblage will be at Singer Park (right by California & St. Johns Ave (several blocks South of the Norton Simon)).

Occupy will have 500 + flags available to those who arrive on-site first and several hundred Occupy T-Shirts.

NOTE : : : Parking for the Rose Parade in Pasadena is impossible and exorbitantly expensive, unless you carpool ! They advise using the MTA Gold Line light rail.

Fare is .50 each way ($.55 for seniors and handicapped). MTA recommends you buy a day pass to avoid the line coming back - .00 (.80 for seniors and handicapped).

Trains depart every 6 minutes starting at 5:42 am. Parking at Union Station is .00 for all day. Get to Union Station the best way you can. Then…..Get off at which you chose :::

• Fillmore Station for the Singer Park Sign assemblage for the OWS "Human Float" and the "We are the 99%" float.

• Del Mar Station for activities between the Norton Simon Museum and Pasadena City Hall and for watching the Rose Parade

• Memorial Park Station for City Hall activities Parsons & Pasadena City College are good spots. Possibly the Pasadena Convention Center. Parking

What time does the regular formal traditional parade start?

7:30/8 a.m.

(best to be there by 7am ..or some can come as early as 12 pm Noon of the day before -- i.e. Sunday noon of January 1st)

YOU too can demonstrate, leaflet/flyer & even just gather together and be supportive

from 12 pm Noon of Sun. Jan 1, 2012 all the way through to 11 am on Monday, Jan 2, 2012.

Remember, there are many varied ways to be part of this Process and Movement.

Bring family, children, friends, [less for pets tho].

DON’T BE AFRAID !!…. while in America, we are ‘protected’ by constitutional words….compared to others who protest-their-govt-states.

So while USA needs to maintain it’s powerful ‘democratic’ reputation, We The People can claim the Freedom to Speak and Address our Grievances to ‘OUR government and representatives’.

When we don’t do this, the Rights to Speak Freely shrivels, evaporates, and dies.

Just come, be PRESENT, enjoy, support and be Proud to be part of OCCUPYers everywhere.
