#OWS S17:National Convergence of the 99% on Wall Street:Financial District, NYC

http://s17nyc.org/

OCCUPY WALL STREET INVITES YOU, THE 99%, DOWN TO THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT FOR THREE DAYS OF EDUCATION, CELEBRATION AND RESISTANCE.

The 1% is controlling our fates; we are drowning in loans, student debt, fraudulent mortgages. You are not a loan. Democracy is sold to the highest bidder, destroying our political process, our communities and our environment. Join a mass mobilization of the 99%. Stand and be counted. Let’s occupy our future, together.

Americans Elect and the Emerging Oligarchy: Update

The Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement has made many more Americans aware of the issue of an emerging oligarchy based on wealth inequality taking control of American Democracy. There are a number of ways to look at this:

“Make no mistake about it, reclaiming the right of the poor, jobless and discontented to peaceably assemble, while politically paralyzing mayors and police forces used to cracking heads and dispersing malcontents is a project only white protesters could have accomplished without police violence and massive arrests.”

and what’s in it for black and brown people and ultimately for everybody. Read below the fold...

Occupy Wall Street, Day 22

So here's the new meme: The occupation is draining the budget! They could just use the protection money paid out by Wall Street to cover those costs, which would mean the occuptation is actually turning a profit. Hooray!
