"You are needed for a wave of action." - Occupy Wall Street

We need you to join the #WaveOfAction that is rising everywhere on Friday. If you cannot make it to an action in your city, please consider supporting the food fund for on the ground participants.

In NYC we will be directly confronting the power of the 1%. Marching on multinational airport corporations who pay poverty wages in the morning, and on Wall Street for the closing bell in the afternoon, and back to our park in the evening where we will begin a three month fight back against the oligarchy that gets stronger everyday.

On the first day of Occupy Wall Street no one thought it could happen either.

6:00 pm: Know Your Rights - NYC #WaveOfAction Mask Edition

Did you know you can be arrested for wearing a mask during #WaveOfAction?

Police in New York City sometimes enforce a very old city law that bans masks and facial coverings at gatherings of two or more people unless it is “a masquerade party or like entertainment.”

If there is more than one masked individual at an event, everyone wearing a mask could get arrested. The law permits the police to use discretion in enforcement, so there may be some situations, and some types of face coverings, that police will ignore.

Join us on Friday April 4th for the New York City launch of the fully revised and updated edition of the Debt Resisters' Operations Manual.

Along with a brief introduction to this revised edition, the event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the role played by books in emancipatory movements more generally—including book blocs of course! Refreshments will be served, red squares will be distributed, and plans will be hatched for moving from analysis to action in the years to come.
