We the 99% will not be silent and we will not be intimidated. This
Saturday thousands more of us will march together as one to show that
it is time that the 99% are heard. Join us on the 2nd week anniversary
of your new movement.
This is a call for individuals, families and community and advocacy
groups to march in solidarity with the #occupywallstreet movement on
Saturday, October 1st at 3 p.m.
We are unions, students, teachers, veterans, first responders,
families, the unemployed and underemployed. We are all races, sexes
and creeds. We are the majority. We are the 99 percent. And we will no
longer be silent.
As members of the 99 percent, we occupy Wall Street as a symbolic
gesture of our discontent with the current economic and political
climate and as an example of a better world to come. Therefore we
invite the public, our fellow 99 percent, to join us in a march on
SATURDAY AT THREE, starting from LIBERTY PLAZA (ZUCCOTTI PARK) at
LIBERTY & BROADWAY.
March will end with a gathering and some eating at Brooklyn Bridge
Park 5:30 pm.
Special Guests include Amiri Baraka and others!
