This Week In Occupy May Day
In the first week in review I’ll present some of the other ideas in the 99% Movement of what to do on May 1st. Though please review my own.
* Occupy LA calls for a general strike on May 1st:
The Occupy movement, which started in mid-September last year as Occupy Wall Street, a protest in a Manhattan park against the excesses of big banks, has morphed into something quite extraordinary across the United States. It seeks to connect and speak for the victims of America’s four-year recession, the ”99 per cent”, who have seen job security, savings and income evaporate in hard times.
While its LA members talk of a national general strike in May, other protesters propose taking their argument to Washington, with a million-strong encampment in front of the nation’s Capitol on January 17, a gathering they are calling Occupy Congress.
This also includes a webpage.
* Occupy Minneapolis also has an Occupy May 1st Committee.
* Occupy Miami has created a working group for May 1st.
* Well, it was Google scheduled at least!
“Occupy Everywhere” is a nice slogan but also rather a mixed message. For those who consider the 99% Movement about a predatory 1% undermining democracy, peace and prosperity Occupying your town, while interesting, is not particularly compelling or relevant. Instead…
Occupy Wall Street.
