Please pass along to others in your group or area. Thanks.
IF YOU DON’T WANT COLBY COLLEGE TO BE BEHOLDEN TO ROGUE BANKERS:

If you can come to Colby and show support for students and opposition to Colby’s cooperation with banker and interest rate manipulator Bob Diamond, you are invited to show up on Saturday, 10 AM, Diamond Building (named after Bob Diamond), Mayflower Hill Drive, Waterville. If you can’t come, you can send emails to Shelby and Gordon to offer your appreciation for their actions.

I just received an email from Gordon Fischer and Shelby O’Neill, the students from Colby college who are organizing the protest at Colby this Saturday. They have confirmed that Bob Diamond will be in attendance and that we will be protesting in front of the building where they are having their meeting. He said that he expects around 30 Colby students to be the core of the student protesters. This is a rare opportunity to address Diamond directly and to support the students at colby. They hope that many statewide Occupiers will attend. You can email gordon directly at gfischer@colby.edu or shelby at soneill@colby.edu for more information. Please attend this important action if you can.

Calling all Occupiers
 
A group of Colby students have organized a fledgling Occupy group. They are circulating a petition calling for the resignation of Bob Diamond from the board of trustees. They have called for a demonstration during the next scheduled trustees meeting at Colby on Oct. 20th. Their demonstration starts at 10:00 on Saturday Oct. 20th in front of the Diamond building. They have requested Occupy Augusta’s support. Please let me know if any of you can come join me at their demonstration. It is very likely that Bob Diamond will be in attendance as chairman of the board of trustees. 
 
Attached is a handout that we will be providing onlookers. 
 
In solidarity
