Update: General Assemblies are held on Monday and Saturday at 7pm on the pedestrian mall, between University and 9th.

This isn't transit-related, but it is related to having a functional democracy in our society. I hope you're all aware of the #OccupyWallStreet movement by now, and those of you who are very clued-in will know that there are now occupations around the nation, including in downtown Los Angeles.

What I doubt most of you know, and what you really ought to know, is that there is a nascent OccupyRiverside organization. (They're also on Facebook.) The first General Assembly meeting will be held tonight at 7pm, at the Gandhi statue in downtown Riverside. The location is easily accessible by public transit, a short walk from either the Riverside Downtown Terminal (1, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 22, 29, 49, 204, 208, 210, 212, 216, Omni 215, Greyhound) or the Riverside-Downtown Metrolink (Riverside Line, IE-OC Line, 91 Line, Amtrak San Joaquins, Amtrak Southwest Chief). The occupation hasn't begun yet, but meetings like this are critical to planning the eventual protest.

Now we return you to your regularly-scheduled bus blogging.
