Tags: events, occupy sandy, strike debt, nyc

We don't know when the next flood or economic storm will hit. But it will, and our networks of resistance and solidarity will be even more necessary, even more fruitful.

Below, you will find ways to engage in our mutual recovery from the man-made disaster of climate change, debt and financial collapse.

This Sunday, Strike Debt is hosting a regional open house and Holiday festival to celebrate the success of the Rolling Jubilee Telethon which raised over $471,999 to abolish $9,444,811 of debt!

Join us to celebrate and learn about Strike Debt projects while enjoying food, art, music, (even a children’s area) with allies including Occupy Sandy, Northeast Strike Debt Affiliates, faith groups and community organizations. Hope to see you there!

Tonight! Occupy Sandy Guerilla Movie Premier + Other Upcoming NYC Events

Posted 1 year ago on Nov. 28, 2012, 2:16 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt
Tags: climate change, occupy sandy, disaster relief, events, nyc, environment

Imgur

For the past month we have come together to support and rebuild communities broken by Hurricane Sandy. As Sharon Lerner wrote in the American Prospect, “the storm handed inequality activists an almost eerily perfect illustration of exactly what they see as wrong with our world.”

In this vein, over Thanksgiving Occupy Sandy joined with communities to share over 10,000 meals. Now we begin to come together to connect the dots from the storm, to climate change, to the reckless greed of the 1%-ers at the forefront of the fossil fuel industry.

The work is far from over, so join us. You can check out the Occupy Sandy Relief NYC Facebook page to get started, or follow @OccupySandy on Twitter.

OWS Updates for the week of Oct. 24th - Nov. 10

Posted 1 year ago on Oct. 24, 2012, 2:24 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt
Tags: march of the unemployed, stop spectra, occupy times square, events, nyc, goldman sachs

Cardboard signs at Occupy Goldman Sachs

Over the past week a new occupation has begun at a particularly special place: the sidewalk by Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein’s house.

Occupy Goldman Sachs grew organically after a Global Noise march ended at Blankfein’s stoop at 15 Central Park West. And what a natural location to occupy, considering how Goldman Sachs engaged in some of the worst financial fraud the world has ever seen in the lead up to the 2008 financial crisis.

But despite such blatant lawlessness not a single official of Goldman Sachs has been prosecuted. Rather the corporation was rewarded, receiving more taxpayer funded bailouts than any other investment bank.

Indeed this is a reminder that, as we close in to the 2012 elections, All Roads Lead to Wall Street. Heads they win, tails we lose; whoever wins the presidency there will be a victory party at Goldman Sachs.

Fortunately, through supporting efforts like #OccupyGoldmanSachs, we just might make them have to deal with the 99% in the process.

Occupy Times Square
Times Square

Due to the influence of money in politics, no matter which candidates are victorious on November 6th, Wall Street still wins. Likewise we can all agree: voting by itself will not bring about the changes we need.

Wednesday, November 7th, 5pm

OWS Updates for the week of October 17th

Posted 1 year ago on Oct. 17, 2012, 3:10 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt
Tags: events, nyc

Last week we joined the global potbanging-protests targeting the homes, corporate lobbies and leisure locales of the 1%.

The #GlobalNoise effort spotlighted the huge and growing debts ordinary people struggle under, in which millions of us have been seduced into taking on unmanageable mortgages, credit cards, student loans, and more by a corrupt financial system. And movement activists the world over responded in kind, as illustrated by the comprehensive listing of media reports from InterOccupy.net.

This week we will keep building a political movement to #StrikeDebt, including a series of Occupy University discussions on debt. Indeed, you are not a loan, or alone, and with your help the 99% will make sure the world hears all of us.

Wednesday, October 17th, 6:30pm
Occupy Think Tank on Occupy Wall St. Radio
Streaming onwbai.org or FM 99.5 in NYC

This week's Think Tank show will be on housing. What does it mean to have a safe and secure place to live? How does "safe and secure housing" translate into practical terms for people living in NYC and America? How does the concept of ownership and private property factors into secure housing? What’s the relationship between housing and homelessness in America is today. Call in to offer suggestions and comments.

Wednesday, October 17th, 12:15pm
Tear up Your Student Debt
Queens College - Quad

Student debt has reached over a trillion dollars. Over the last 10 years, tuition and fees at state schools have increased 72%. The times are ripe for action! We're calling on everyone who wants to protest outrageously high education costs and mounting student debt to organize actions in their area or join us at Queens College on October 17, where we collectively rip up (or burn up) our student debt statements or tuition bills. We want to send a message that enough is enough!

Thursday, October 18th, 4pm
Hot & Crusty Workers Rally for Justice
Hot & Crusty restaurant, 1201 2nd Ave.

The struggle continues, and despite holding the picket line for over 44 days without a strike fund or any source of financial support, the Hot & Crusty worker’s resolve is stronger than ever. Please join and show management that community presence and participation is still strong and we are watching.

Thursday, October 18th, 4:30pm
International Student Movement - NYC Global Action
Brecht Forum, 451 West St.

Students, youth, and allies have organized an Edu-Festival as part of the International Student Movement's call for a global day of action. It will be a collaborative, celebratory space for developing strategy and sharing about the organizing already underway in New York and across the globe.

Join Healthcare for the 99%, Physicians for a National Health Program-NY Metro and allies against cuts to our social safety net – Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

Thursday, October 18th, 6pm
Entrepreneurship and Exploitation in the Music Industry
Assembly Hall at Judson Memorial Church - 239 Thompson Street, NYC

Musicians regularly surmount myriad problems from low to no pay, to inconsistent work. We make it work because we have to make a living. These issues are not unique to the music industry. They extend to many professions deemed “entrepreneurial” or “independent”, including taxi drivers, childcare workers, construction workers, writers, and others. Join musicians and other workers for a facilitated discussion and strategy session to explore ways we can act together against the systems that keep us isolated and divided.

Thursday, October 18th, 7pm
The Visual Culture of Debt with Nick Mirzoeff
Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, 323 West 39th Street

Neo-liberalism has visualized the debt society as a distinctly new arrangement of public space that Occupy has tried to counter. While debt is often said to be invisible, it is the means of naming, separating and ordering space in such a way that it comes to seem right. This teach-in will offer ways to analyze this visualization of debt, both in the present and by means of a comparison with the Civil Rights Movement.

Thursday, October 18th, 9pm
Justice for Jazz Artists March for Fair Pay & Pensions
Washington Square Park

The J4JA campaign marches on, and is going back to the Blue Note with a live band to tell the club owners that musicians and jazz fans want them to do the right thing. The demands of the campaign include: Pension, Pay scales, and Protections on recordings for all musicians who play the club.

Friday, October 19th, 7pm
Value: Who Decides?
Momenta Art - 56 Bogart Street, Brooklyn

Occupy Museums invites you to to a discussion on value. It is said that art represents our cultural heritage, our common legacy. Does it? What value is shared when art objects become markers of class hierarchy and easily manipulated commodities, screened by auction-house connoisseurs and turned into “tangible assets” as they enter the secondary market? But how can we value art apart from this model? How might this value system work?

Saturday, October 20, 12:30pm
March to Stop the Purple Monster
Washington Square Park

The Purple Monster is at it again. NYU's administration is planning a massive expansion in Greenwich Village against the wishes of residents and the majority of NYU's own faculty.

For more information visit http://nyufasp.com/
