WALL STREET TO THE 99%: DROP DEAD
OCCUPY WALL STREET PUSHES BACK FOR THE 99%
ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY ACTIONS IN THE WORKS – SEPT. 15-17
ALL ROADS LEAD TO WALL STREET
September 17, 2012 (#S17) marks the beginning of year two of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and four years since Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy, helping catapult our global economy into a new phase of disrepair and dragging millions of ordinary people down with it. No complaints from the rich 1% – they’re still rich. They’re insatiable unless we push back.
On September 15-17, Occupy Wall Street is planning three days of education, celebration and resistance to economic injustice with convergences and assemblies, concerts, and some of the famous OWS direct action. Much of our organizing happens behind-the-scenes, but you’ll see Occupy pop into view soon; and as we are sure you already know, we are bigger than the sum of our mass demonstrations (they just tend to get the most attention).
If you are planning a piece about OWS, let us know and we’ll connect you to organizers here in NYC and elsewhere.
