Lopi LaRoe: 917-648-7220
A day of global action against the banks that caused the Global Crisis and a mass rally at Times Square at 6pm. Meet up at 4pm in Bryant Park to embark on a Financial Crimes Walking Tour. On this day, countries around the world are rising up in opposition to austerity. Banks have gambled away our futures irresponsibly, and we are paying the price. Move your money out of the big banks, demand accountability, and let us stand together to show that the power of the people is stronger than the power of wealth. Visit www.anothernyc.org/may-15 for more details and to read the global call to action. #15M on twitter
All week there have been actions organized to address the many issues we face in communities around NYC and across the globe: from cuts in social services, to an austerity agenda that redistributes your tax revenue into private hands, to the financial institutions (that we bailed out) that continue to make record profits at our expense. www.anothernyc.org and #anothernyc on twitter
Occupy Wall Street is part of an international people powered movement fighting for economic justice in the face of neoliberal economic practices, the crimes of Wall Street, and a government controlled by monied interests. #OWS is the 99% organizing to end the tyranny of the 1%.
