[NEW YORK, NY] September 17, 2012 (#S17) marks the beginning of year two of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and four years since Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy, helping catapult our global economy into a new phase of disrepair and dragging millions of ordinary people down with it.
No complaints from the rich 1% – they’re still rich. They’re insatiable unless we push back.
On September 15-17, Occupy Wall Street is planning three days of education, celebration and resistance to economic injustice (http://s17nyc.org/schedule/) with convergences and assemblies, concerts, and some of the famous OWS direct action. Much of our organizing happens behind-the-scenes, but you’ll see Occupy pop into view soon; and as we are sure you already know, we are bigger than the sum of our mass demonstrations (they just tend to get the most attention).
If you are planning a piece about OWS, let us know and we’ll connect you to organizers here in NYC and elsewhere. Contact the OWS PR Team at 347-292-1444 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more info on the #S17 visit http://www.s17nyc.org
