Occupy Revelstoke headed for all candidates’ forum

New activist group Occupy Revelstoke meets tonight for the first time.

Some of the members of the new Occupy Revelstoke group will be heading to this evening’s Revelstoke city council all-candidates’ forum following their inaugural group meeting.

Jessica Inskip started the Facebook page promoting the Revelstoke branch of the international ‘Occupy’ movement.

She was reluctant to speak much about the new, local chapters’ plans, saying that’s what they’d be starting work on at their first meeting on Nov. 2 at 5 p.m. at Sangha Bean cafe.

“We’re just a group of people who are passionate about keeping Revelstoke a place that we can enjoy, and watching what’s going on around the world we just want to make sure that we’re aware of what’s going on in our own town,” she said. “I’ll have more to tell you after we’ve actually met.”

“As it stands right now, I’m just trying to get people passionate about it – out of their complacency.”

She described the response to the local movement as fluctuating, saying there is a core group of individuals but she hoped more would become involved soon, hopefully tonight.

Inskip said some of the participants were planning to head down to the Revelstoke city council all-candidates’ forum after their first meeting. That forum starts at 7 p.m. at the Revelstoke Seniors’ Centre in the community centre.
