#LetFreedomSpring march arriving at Union Square

Today, we take direct action against the NYPD. They have spied on us, they have assaulted us, they have kidnapped us from the streets without cause or charge. We, the 99% of people who will no longer be silent have chosen to make our voices heard. Former commissioner Raymond Kelly, we, the people have decided you no longer have a job. Any acts of brutality you order today will only serve as further evidence of your misconduct.



TODAY. NOON. LIBERTY SQUARE. #LetFreedomSpring! Ray Kelly Must Go!

At noon, we will march to call for NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly’s immediate resignation and to show that we are fearless in the face of state violence. Last Saturday, the police department broke up a peaceful Spring celebration in Liberty Square by kicking, punching and beating Occupy Wall Street activists. Since then, NYPD has conducted nightly raids on Occupiers in Union Square to enforce arbitrary rules as an excuse to harass, intimidate, brutalize, and arrest those gathered peacefully there to build community and challenge the financial elite. The NYPD enacts this brutality against communities of color, Muslim Americans, women, the LGBTQI community and other activists across this city on a daily basis to uphold a system of such vast economic inequality. Violence is required to maintain order for the 1%.

On Saturday, we will march together from Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park) to Union Square to say enough!

We will no longer tolerate violence in our neighborhoods and against our children.

We will no longer tolerate Stop and Frisk.

We will no longer tolerate constant surveillance.

We will no longer tolerate the violence suppression of free speech and right to assembly.

We know that this violence is the strong arm of economic and social injustice.

In the face of this brutal system, we are fearless, fierce and feminist. Together we declare, let freedom spring!

Today, 3/24: Disrupting Dirty Power - The Eviction of the Fossil Fuel Occupation begins

Posted 5 years ago on March 24, 2012, 4:29 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

disrupt dirty power

Today! 5pm at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, NYC

Consider: During the warmest winter in modern memory, fossil fuel companies cooked up new plans to bake our planet once and for all. Defying public outrage and a presidential rebuff, they laid tar sands pipelines. They imperiled our water supplies with poisonous fracking. They went on drilling and spilling oil in our increasingly lifeless seas. And they continued to move whole mountaintops for that supreme carbon bomb: dirty coal.
