A multi-city effort targeting Wall Street on the Waterfront, including a lot of activity by inland groups. Some details here, and be sure to read the first comment for excellent overview of union involvement.
A national effort aimed at "Wall Street on the waterfront." Some back story from Hip Hop Occupies:
From Seattle to San Diego, oppressed peoples of all backgrounds are mobilizing to shut down the power of the 1% in this coordinated national effort. We choose to occupy capital, not capitol buildings, because we are no longer waiting to have our voices validated at the whim of elected officials.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The jobs crisis has left so many people out of work for so long that most of America's unemployed are no longer receiving unemployment benefits.
Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent - a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more.
It is Day 18 -- 18!!!!! -- of the Wall Street occupation protest!
How about a collective nation-wide rejection of the TV media that are massively rejecting this demonstration -- the protest's message and its worthiness!!!! A media that are turning their backs, along with the government and the amoral elite, on our present plight that the Wall Street fraudsters, our government and media, NOT us, are the cause of!
How might some of us show them and the thousands of others in other cities taking to the streets that we are behind them and willing to make a show of sacrifice, too, to fight this FIGHT OF A LIFETIME? Read below the fold...
