Wowsa can't wait to tweet.
Also, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is having the following event at 1 PM at Liberty Square tomorrow:Calling all Black, African, African-American, Caribbean, Latino, and Indigenous people!
On October 15th, the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party, let's gather at Zuccotti Park highlighting a unique message: that Wall Street was literally built by our ancestors, through stolen slave labor to enrich the 1%. As people of color in this country, our economic potential has been actively suppressed and undervalued, so we know that Wall Street has been corrupt from the very beginning! It's nothing new. Together, let us bring our issues to the table to deepen the dialogue at Zuccotti Park.
We stand in solidarity with the #OccupyWallStreet protestors and recognize that the current national fight for freedom and economic justice is one that has always been central to our self-determination as a people. Their struggle is our struggle!
In the Akan language, Sankofa means "go back and fetch it." It represents the tradition of infusing the present with lessons from history. The concept of Sankofa reminds us that we must look to our past in order to meaningfully move forward.
Bring your signs, your drums, and your shekeres!
