Wall-Street Sit-In, Sept. 17, 2011
Josh has assisted me to discover what the FBI memo and poster for “Days of Rage” relates to. It relates to a non-violent sit-in or occupation of Wall Street to be held Sept. 17, 2011. To characterize it as “Days of Rage” seems to me an attempt to scare people and lead them to believe it’s violent. I have no difficulty supporting a non-violent sit-in.
On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices and we will not leave until that demand has been met.
Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.
Who is Occupy Wall Street?
Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.
