Petitions to repeal HB 59: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/repeal-the-ohio-state.fb28?source=s.fb&r_by=94859
Cleveland gathers to raise awareness over Governor Kasich’s decision to defund organizations that offer reproductive healthcare. One in five women in the U.S. has visited a Planned Parenthood health center at least once in her life. *
What Does This Mean? What Can we Do? How Do we Move Forward From Here?
We have invited organizations focused on correcting the situation to answer questions and direct us to the best action plan. This Demonstration is a peaceful rally showing support and raising our voices. Planned Parenthood services help prevent more than 684,000 unintended pregnancies each year and provides 585,000 Pap tests and nearly 640,000 breast exams each year- critical services in detecting cancer.* We want the healthcare we deserve and a decision that is rightfully ours.

Join us downtown on the anniversary of the arrests of the Cleveland 4 and the reemergence of the Occupy Cleveland movement.
When: Noon, Tuesday April 30th 2013
Where: Public Square. Most likely at Tom Johnson Quadrant on the north west quadrant at W. Roadway and Rockwell Streets.
Since the events of a year ago the Occupy Wall Street movement has been suffering the effects of coordinated campaigns to suppress dissent and protest in public spaces as it actively promotes a better model of social change from the grassroots. Part of that strategy by post 9/11 law enforcement and homeland security agencies has been to attempt to entrap activists in terror plots promoted by these agencies. This happened here in Cleveland a year ago with 5 members who participated with us in open, transparent general assemblies. Our movement suffered by the actions of both law enforcement and these individuals’ misguided collaboration with an ex-con informant (never part of Occupy Cleveland) with multiple felonies working for the FBI off the premises of our movement. We have survived the damage done and are willing to engage the public and media about how we move forward, support our friends paying the awful penalty with long prison sentences, and rally for Joshua Stafford who is attempting to fight his charges this summer.
Occupy Cleveland has always affirmed its commitment to the principles of non-violence, following the Occupy Wall Street movement’s example, from the beginning of the movement here in October of 2011. It confirmed this following the events of April 30, 2012 and has firmly disavowed any participants who strayed from the proposals passed by the General Assembly early on concerning our movement’s commitment to non-violence. Occupy Cleveland was clear on May 1st 2012 with the public and media about what we stand on the issue of non-violence. We continue that commitment today and on the anniversary of the events of the arrests.
Join us tomorrow and help us spread the story of the Cleveland 4 and the impact of free speech and assembly here in Cleveland.
Erin McArdle discusses her choices to fight her charges and defend our 1st Amendment rights on Public Square. She points out the oppression on the horizon for Occupy and the importance to stand and deliver for the space to say what needs to be said on Public Square.
This interview was taken in early March after the City of Cleveland refused to dismiss the original charges. Because of their choice to prosecute and deny this was a civil rights issue, Erin and Lea had to decide for the long haul of not allowing the City Law Department and Mayors office to intimate citizens with arrests and long expensive challenges to their abuse of police powers over Free Speech. The video illustrates what it takes in clarity and execution to struggle in the Public Square for a voice for the 99%.
