Announcement :: Labor
New York Fun Exchange - Saturday September 17, 2011
16 Sep 2011
In July 2011, Adbusters put out a call to redeemers, rebels and revolutionaries to occupy Wall Street on Saturday, September 17, 2011.
States bail out banks and banks lend money back to states. Speculators could become servants. States must abandon the failed models of trickle down corporate tax relief and help those caught under the wheel.

Hey President Obama! Are you ready for our demand?

This article originally appeared on Waging Nonviolence.

When the culture-jamming activist group Adbusters put out a call on July 13 for "20,000 people" to "flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months," it never said who those people would be. Now, the question on the minds of everyone from the Department of Homeland Security to the Lower East Side anarchist set is just who and how many will actually show up.
The simplest cop-out of an answer is to say that nobody exactly knows. To an extent, it's true. The large, established, membership groups—unions, lobbies, etc.—have kept quiet about it, so their rank-and-file can't be counted on en masse. There's no central planning committee, no permit with the city, and not even an official website, so there's no obvious person to ask for a prediction or a figure. (Adbusters continues to say 20,000, though its role in organizing is, according to Senior Editor Micah White, solely "philosophical.") Saturday, among other things, will be a test of the scattered American grassroots—their ability to mobilize against the outsized power of corporate elites, and their inclination to do so.
