[olympiaworkers] Solidarity picket against property developers, Lorig Associates Nov. 2

Start: 11/02/2009 - 18:20
Timezone: America/Los Angeles

Some comrades from the Seattle Solidarity Network ( are coming
down to Oly for an action against Lorig (a property developer) & we need
some help.

This action will be in solidarity with Patricia, a former employee who was
pushed out of her job at Lorig & dealt with a lot of racist bullshit from

We're hoping that Olympia-folk could meet us at 6:20pm in front of the
City of Olympia building at 900 Plum Street SE.

Let me know if you have ANY questions whatsoever at or 206-973-2548 (NEIL).


Here's the official-like blurb:

Our favorite discriminating property developers, Lorig Associates, are
hoping the Olympia City Council will choose to award them the contract to
develop a downtown municipal parking garage, plus retail and housing
units. Lorig really wants this job, but they're still competing with four
other companies to get it.

*Action Monday:* We'll be picketing outside, and flyering inside, the
Olympia City Countil meeting, letting everyone know the truth about Lorig.
According to the city's website, this council meeting (moved from Tuesday
to Monday, since Tuesday's election day!) will be televised live. Let's
see if we can reduce Lorig's chances of scoring a contract from the city
of Olympia!

*WHEN/WHERE:* This Monday, November 2nd. Those coming from Seattle are
meeting up at LELO (3700 S Hudson St) at *3:30pm* and then carpooling down
to Olympia. We're starting so early because travel time on I-5 can be
unpredictable, and we can't risk missing this action opportunity due to
traffic jams. If we get to Olympia early, we'll start picketing early.
Those who are already in or near Olympia should meet us at 6:20pm in front
of the City of Olympia building at 900 Plum Street SE, Olympia, WA.
