November 2nd: National Day of Action in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in Defense of the Occupy Movement Nationally

The Oakland General Assembly has called for a general strike on November 2nd.  In response to this call and the national call for solidarity actions on that day, Occupy Wall Street is organizing solidarity action here in NYC.  Since the brutal attack on Oakland, there have been several other police attacks on occupations, including in Denver, Nashville, Austin and Rochester.  Stand together with Oakland the Occupy Movement across the country to say that our voices will not be silenced!

4 pm: Student Convergence at Washington Square Park - will then march to meet the rest of the demonstration
5-6 pm: Gather at Zucotti Park (Liberty Plaza at Broadway and Liberty)
5 pm: March from Zucotti past City Hall to One Police Plaza

On October 25th, Occupy Oakland was brutally attacked by riot police.  One protestor, Iraq veteran Scott Olson, remains in critical condition.  But on Wednesday, thousands of protestors re-occupied Oscar Grant Plaza in courageous defiance of this attempt at repression.  The Oakland General Assembly has called for a general strike on Wednesday, November 2nd.  Given this call, and given the national attempt by mayors and police to repress and silence our movement, the Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street is calling for a national day of action on November 2nd in solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in defense of the Occupy movement nationally.  We urge students, labor, the unemployed and all members of the 99% to take action on that day to send a message that our movement will not be silenced.
