HELP BUILD THE PEOPLE’S WALL
THE PEOPLE’S WALL: A NONVIOLENT MASS CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE
On September 17th, exactly one year after the Occupation of Wall Street, the whole world will once again be watching. People from all walks of life are going to assemble in the streets surrounding the New York Stock Exchange in a historic act of nonviolent civil disobedience. We will deliver a clear message: No More Business As Usual.
Meet at 7am at one of these marked intersections (… or as close as you can get, staying close to the red lines).
Try to wear suits or business casual! This will help us blend in and make the job of the police more time-consuming.
Now the whole world will be watching: Tell them why you are there.
If you can’t be arrested, but still want to help support the People’s Wall:
Meet at the assigned intersections or as close as you can get.
Stick to the sidewalks.
Comply with all police orders, as calmly and slowly as possible.
Support your friends and family as they make a statement against Wall Street. Repeat their words via human mic. Take pictures. Take video. Tell the world what you saw.
There will be three public practice sessions:
September 12th, 6pm, Liberty Plaza (aka Zuccotti Park)
September 15th, 3pm, Washington Square Park
September 16th, 3pm, Foley Square
Over the past year, we have repeatedly demonstrated that Wall Street — the system of greed that they prop up, the incentive structures they embody, and the culture of accumulation and exploitation that they require — is at the root of our many crises:
Worker exploitation. Mass Incarceration & The New Jim Crow.
Environmental destruction. The Foreclosure epidemic.
Austerity. Predatory debt. Our corrupt political process.
All of our grievances are connected. If you follow the money… all roads lead to Wall Street.
