Occupy the Highway is leaving Wednesday, at noon.


I went to the end of their meeting at 60 Wall today -- CBS Radio
reporter in tow.
This is a great press story, and we need to support them with getting
local media for them en route -- radio, talk shows, print, TV, etc.
Someone should dedicate him or herself to this -- wonderful way to get
the OWS story out -- local media and national.
Seems like a really together group -- an organizer, Michael Glazer
understood the importance of press, and was thrilled to talk to
reporters, to do local media, etc.
They'll be visiting Occupy Philly, Occupy Trenton and Occupy
Baltimore, "nightly GAs and dicussions along the route."
They're planning on getting to D.C. in time for the Congressional
Super Committee meeting on November 23 -- 'to protest the Bush tax
cuts that only benefit the top 1%'

Occupy Museums! Occupy Sotheby's!

    Solidarity

This week Occupy Museums once again stands in solidarity with the art handlers at Local 814 who have been locked out of their jobs for three months. Despite pulling in record profits last year, Sotheby’s is demanding wage and benefit cuts and has hired unskilled replacement art handlers at a lower wage. The union has stood vigilant on the picket lines against these injustices for twelve weeks, but are still without a fair contract. Join us Wednesday November 9th, on the picket line outside of Sotheby’s contemporary art auction to show your support and solidarity for Teamsters Local 814!

Schedule of Events:
4PM Meet in Liberty Park
4:45 Occupy the Subway
5:30 Meet with Teamsters Local 814 and Hunter College Students and March to Sotheby’s!



Call To Action
 
Bloomberg  is having a conference bringing together REBNY members who will be addressing the current economic downturn and how it affects their industry. Related Co and many other millionaires will be there. Event link
 
Objective: The main objective for this action is to return Walmart to sender Stephen Ross, Related’s CEO, by sending back to him Walmart boxes delivered by New Yorkers.
 
Message: New Yorkers return big box Walmart to sender Related Co
 
General Goals: To send a message to all developers in NYC that they should not be doing business with Walmart. To make an example out of Related and show them that if they make a deal with Walmart for their first store, that it will open the floodgates for 159 stores in NYC.
 
General Description:
 
We will have two people going inside the building to pass out business cards sending the message. " Don't be Related to Walmart", when this person gets kicked out, a delegation of  residents from the five boroughs will go into the building and try to personally delivered a bouquet of flowers inside a box that says: Return to Sender, Walmart to Stephen Ross from New Yorkers. The delegation will try to go to ask to delivered this personally, but they will be probably will be ask to leave.  As the delegation is heading outside they will be received with music and floods of people chanting and singing outside in the plaza. There will be bikers arriving in costumes dressed up as Walmarts, following people who are going to be dressed up as boroughs and a big contingency of people rally around them. Musicians will play the song from flash mob and people will sing and dance. While the song is being play and people are dancing, a group of people will pull out a bag of balloons and send it as high as possible with a message for Stephen Ross "Don't be Related to Walmart".
