Several events are already planned to further the cause, including a free day-long concert featuring Sparks the Rescue, Stream Reggae, Sandbag, and Huak. Organizers had wanted to have it on October 15 in Monument Square, but city spokeswoman Nicole Clegg says the square has already been reserved for use by charity walks (benefiting the Iris Foundation and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer) both that day and the following day. (The resolution of that was not yet clear by the Phoenix's Tuesday deadline; check thePhoenix.com/AboutTown for updates as they are available.)

There's also a move afoot to organize a Halloween march on October 29, at which participants are encouraged to dress as "corporate zombies" — truly undead, and feeding on the brains of the living.

Also, SPACE Gallery has put out a call for entries in an "OccupySPACE" installation in the front window at 538 Congress Street, on the theme of "public thoughts about our financial crisis and threats to true democratic process." Anyone can enter — submit either a letter-sized piece of paper in person or by mail, or email a printable PDF of a page that size to nat@space538.org. The show will go up on October 17, and at the future (unannounced) date when it comes down, the materials will be collected in a binder for archiving.
