Occupy Worcester and Worcester Tea Party NDAA protest tomorrow

From the Worcester Tea Party:


Friday, February 3 has been designated for  a Nationwide NDAA Day of Protest.  Worcester’s NDAA Protest will take place from 3pm- 7pm in front of the U.S. District Court, 595 Main Street, Worcester.

Various and diverse groups will joining together to stand up against one of the most egregious affronts to our constitutional rights.  Despite assurances from Republican and Democrat Congressmen and Senators, the 2012 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) allows for the indefinite detention of United States citizens.


Friday’s nationwide protest is being supported by Tea Parties, Occupy groups, Oathkeepers, and civil libertarian organizations.   The objective of the demonstration is to demand that Congress repeal Sections 1021 and 1022 which could lead to the indefinite military detention of Americans without due process. The protest is not affiliated with any particular political or grassroots organizations. We are uniting as individuals who want to stop this tyranny before it gets worse.


Worcester’s NDAA protest was initiated by Occupy Worcester.  As much as we may disagree with the goals and tactics of this organization, we feel that this issue is so important that these differences should be put aside and we should stand together as citizens to protest this attempt to circumvent the constitution.


Bring a sign if you wish, but the main part of the protest will consist of a reading of the Bill of Rights.

Triumph of the City Talk

The Research Bureau is going to be sponsoring a talk by Edward Glaeser, Professor of Economics, Harvard University, who’ll be discussing his book Triumph of the City.

The talk, which is quite possibly the most 508/My 5 Senses-themed program ever sponsored by the WRRB, will be on Thursday, September 22, at 4:00 p.m.  Details here.

One can only wonder whether the irony of a talk about the superior aspects of urban life being held at what is quite possibly Worcester’s least urban college (no offense, Assumption) will come up.
