Supporters of Occupy Seattle have reportedly “occupied” lectures at Seattle Central Community College. And now, according to the Seattle Times, instructors who work at the college have started teaching classes in support of the movement:
“The classes are scheduled to be held in the plaza of Seattle Central Community College. They will focus on subjects such as legislative lobbying, the art of the protest sign and filming to document human rights violations.”
MSNBC reports that the ‘Occupy’ classes began at SCCC Sunday night, and were titled “Why We Support Occupy,“ ”The Art of the Protest Sign,“ and ”Filming to Document Human Rights Violations.”
Occupy Seattle protesters moved their location to Seattle Central Community College Saturday after administrators said they would tolerate protesters camping on campus.
“We’re excited to work with Occupy Seattle in recognition of the fact that the employees and students of the Seattle community colleges are the 99 percent,” said Karen Strickland, president of the American Federation of Teachers-Seattle to KOMO News. The SCCC president has said that legal ambiguities allow the encampment at the community college.
