Totally Agree.... #occupythebanks and lets get in the streets this week.
As of now, there are 3 public meeting points for Saturday. Please add
others that I may have missed. Or form an affinity group and go to a
bank in the morning! Bring Cameras, do press, and ask for
11am March on Banks-- from Zucotti and probably (Bowling Green)
1pm-2pm Students Meet up at Washington Square Park (visit banks from there)
5:00pm Take Times Square Mass Convergence
Here is the call to action from the October 15th Working group. Let's
make Saturday something different.
Occupy Wall Street October 15th Call to Action Against Banks.
The time has come to fight the banks.
We call on fellow occupiers and those who stand in solidarity to join
us in moving from protest to resistance
No longer will banks take our homes.
No longer will banks rob students of our future.
No longer will banks destroy the environment.
No longer will banks fund the misery of war.
No longer will banks cause massive unemployment.
And no longer will banks create and profit from economic crisis
without a struggle.
The political system has been corrupted and taken over by Wall Street.
The banks have destroyed our economy and captured our democracy.
Occupy Wall Street is a part of a global movement. On Oct. 15th and
beyond, we will take our message directly to the banks.
This saturday, visit your local Bank of America, Wells Fargo, or Chase
and let them know, we will not allow business as usual.
