The Occupy SLO group will hold a women’s rights and empowerment teach-in seminar today at 4:30 p.m. at the county courthouse, across from the government center on Monterey Street.
The session will include discussions about street harassment and what to do about it; the history of women’s rights and the women’s rights movement; information on rape crisis, shelters and other resources; and, possibly, a short selfdefense course.
The anti-war group Food Not Bombs will provide food beginning at 6 p.m.
Occupy SLO also will conduct its regular silent march through the downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers Market at 6:30 p.m. Thursday with a theme of homelessness.
The group also plans an art installation featuring a small version of a Depression-era Hooverville at the county courthouse.
The event, planned as part of an international demonstration, is set to start at 11 a.m. April 7. A march through downtown is set to follow at noon, and the organization has scheduled what it described as a general assembly at 1:30 p.m.
Occupy SLO is part of a national movement protesting income and wealth inequality.
