Subject:   [september17discuss] Expanding our movment Oct 8th Action
 

I am putting toghther a Protest at BMW Guggenheim space on saturday we

will march up from Zuccotti Park at 5pm

 

 

October 8th at 7pm - 11pm

 

First Park in the LOWER EAST SIDE

 

Houston and 2nd Manhattan, NY

 

Occupy BMW GUGGENHEIM SPACE ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE

 

Note: by occupy we mean for 4 hours so as not to take away from the

larger Zuccotti Park Occupy Wall Street movement

 

Demand that BMW stops selling a product that will end humanity

electric cars ?

 labor rights ?

 

We are going to have a sign making party next week which is TBA

  As of now bring signs that say Anti BMW Global Climate change slogans/

or art related to BMW and Global Climate Change.

 

LOWER EAST SIDE

 

First Park

 Second Ave off the F train

Houston and 2nd

 

I am of the belief that Art is essential to a healthy society and

somebody needs to fund it (the people?). The interesting thing about

this space is its molded after all of our collective DIY projects that

we make as artists and activists except, this time, with a corporate

sponsor. Now we all have to face the question of how to get our ART out

to as many people as possible and that's a fair concern. However since

this space directly reaches out to the LEFT here is our opportunity to

take this sponsorship and turn it on its head, dissect it and question

it. To make the corporate sponsorship backfire and turn it into

negative press instead of a positive PR Boast for the BMW corporation.

This is a NEO LIBERALISM moving in on our territory and this is the

push back.

 

Change is coming as part of "American Fall"

(the Occupy Wall Street Movement)

 

This is a 4 hour event and please return to the Wall Street

Occupation(Liberty Park) or home after that :)
