N17 was already shaping up to be a significant day of action and that's now taken on added significance given what's transpired in the last 24 hours.
There are things planned throughout the day that need to be documented.
Looking for volunteers, especially for early parts of the day. (7 AM action & the 3 PM convergences, especially the Student Strike at Union Square, which could be quite large.)
I have lined up what we probably need for 5 PM.
Also need editors for the footage.
Schedule:Liberty Plaza - 7:00 am: SHUT DOWN WALL STREET RESIST austerity
Enough of this economy that divides us - it's time for an economy that works for all. We will gather at 7:00 a.m., before the ring of the Trading Floor Bell, to confront Wall Street with the stories of people on the frontlines of economic injustice. There, before the Stock Exchange, we will exchange stories rather than stocks.

3:00 pm: OCCUPY THE SUBWAYS RECLAIM our democracy!
Throughout the boroughs, we will gather at 7 central subway hubs, to listen to a singular story from one of our hardest-hit and most inspirational neighbors.
Bronx: Fordham Rd, and 3rd Ave/138th
Brooklyn: Broadway Junction, and Borough Hall
Queens: Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Ave, and Jamaica Center Parsons Archer
Manhattan: 125th st, and Union Square
Staten Island: St George/Staten Island Ferry
Then we will take our own stories to the trains, using the "People's Mic". We will rise up from the underground to join thousands of others gathered in the light of day, at Foley Square.
STUDENT STRIKE: Gather at Union Square
Take the Square 5pm. RECREATE
Community members, community groups and labor are taking their fight for jobs and economic justice out of the park, and into the streets, in this first nationally coordinated day of action between organized labor and Occupy Wall Street. for more info and to RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140299612738681
Across the country, our infrastructure is falling apart; our bridges, our roads, our public transit systems are in a state of disrepair. Enough! It's time to revitalize our economy with the creation of local jobs which serve our country as a whole!
At 5:00 pm, we celebrate with tens of thousands of people as we gather at Foley square, march to our bridges and demand that we get back to work! The celebration will culminate in a festival of light as we mark the two-month anniversary of the #occupy movement!
Details and RSVP here:
Take a sick day, come out from the darkness surrounding Wall Street and into the light!
Resist austerity. Rebuild the economy. Reclaim our democracy.
