Occupy Wall Street is calling for a national day of mass non-violent direct action on November 17, in celebration of the two month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Actions are planned in cities across the country, including but not limited to New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon. In addition to U.S. demonstrations, there will also be international demonstrations of solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement in Spain, Belgium and Germany.
In New York, Occupy Wall Street enthusiasts plan on shutting down Wall Street the morning of Thursday, November 17. The following statement is found at Occupy Wall Street:
Enough of this economy that exploits and divides us. It's time we put an end to Wall Street's reign of terror and begin building an economy that works for all. We will gather in Liberty Square at 7:00 a.m., before the ring of the Trading Floor Bell, to prepare to confront Wall Street with the stories of people on the frontlines of economic injustice. There, before the Stock Exchange, we will exchange stories rather than stocks.
Schedule of events for New York Occupy Wall St:
7:00 Shut Down Wall Street
