Join an Event!

Dear MoveOn member,

Have you heard the incredible news?

Thanks to the unflinching commitment of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, and support from hundreds of thousands of people across the country, they won their fight this morning to continue the occupation of Zuccotti Park.1
Mayor Mike Bloomberg had threatened to evict the protesters on behalf of Brookfield Properties, the real estate conglomerate that owns Zuccotti Park. But in the face of massive public opposition, at the last minute, they backed down.
But New York isn’t the only place protesters are under threat of eviction and intimidation. Protesters in Boston, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and other cities have been arrested and harassed.2

This morning, we saw what happens when hundreds of thousands of us mobilize. So now, Occupy Wall Street is calling for a global day of action tomorrow against Wall Street greed, with events in more than 950 cities and 82 countries.3 This is the time to join an occupation solidarity action in your area to defend this peaceful protest movement and help it take root across the country.

Can you join an occupation solidarity action this Saturday?

No, but keep me updated

After the news hit that the Occupy Wall Street protesters would be effectively evicted from Zuccotti Park, the call went out across the country.

300,000 MoveOn members signed an emergency petition to Mayor Bloomberg in less than 24 hours, which was delivered to the park and City Hall last night. Tens of thousands of people in New York and across the country put in calls to the city, demanding that the protesters be allowed to stay.

And at 6 this morning, thousands of MoveOn members, union workers, community organizers, and other brave New Yorkers swelled the ranks of the protesters, standing with them shoulder-to-shoulder against their impending eviction.

Most incredible were the 99% protesters themselves. They stood their ground, in the best traditions of nonviolent resistance. And in an amazing show of organization and action, they undertook a full-scale cleaning of the park, taking away the false pretext of a “cleaning operation” under which Brookfield and the city were threatening to evict them.

Want to be part of the Occupy story in your area by joining the solidarity action near you this Saturday?

Yes (click here to find the action nearest you).
No, but keep me updated

Occupy Wall Street has shown us what’s possible when a small and dedicated group of people standing up against the corporate takeover of our democracy are supported by a wider progressive community.

Whether you want to help form the core of committed protesters in your area or be part of the progressive community that stands with them, tomorrow is the time to join in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street:

MoveOn.org moves in on ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests

Published: 10:59 AM 10/03/2011
By Caroline May – The Daily Caller

The “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just became a little more *GASP* mainstream. Moveon.org has announced its support for the anti-capitalist movement and is encouraging members to join in its “massive ‘Virtual March on Wall Street.’”

On Wednesday, when MoveOn.org hosts an online video “march,” members will join in with labor and community groups for what the say will be the biggest demonstration to date.

“Together, we’ll add hundreds of thousands of voices of solidarity from the American Dream Movement for the protests across the country and show just how widespread outrage at the Wall Street banks really is,” MoveOn wrote in an email blast to members…

Plans for a day of global protest kicked off Saturday with Occupy Wall Street-style demonstrations in cities in Europe, Asia and Australia.

United for Global Change, the movement behind the push for international protest, projected 951 cities in 82 countries would be taking part in rallies worldwide, including cities in England, France, Belgium, Ireland, Kenya, Mexico, Russia, South Africa and Venezuela.

In London, hundreds of protesters gathered in the city’s financial district by Saturday afternoon. Police closed a subway station near where demonstrators were massing as their numbers began to overwhelm the narrow city streets, according to the Guardian.

The Associated Press reported about 5,000 people took to the streets to protest in front of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, and hundreds marched through the Bosnian city of Sarajevo carrying pictures of Che Guevara and old communist flags that read “Death to capitalism, freedom to the people.”

In Rome, a band of protesters smashed shop windows and torched cars while demonstrating against both corporate greed and Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, who barely survived a confidence vote Friday…

Occupy Los Angeles — A Capitalist confronts the 99% – OccupyLA

Uploaded by WindowOnLA on Oct 14, 2011

The OccupyLA protesters call themselves the 99%. A self-described 1%’R, a Capitalist, wandered into the Occupy Los Angeles protest at City Hall one evening and confronted the protestors and answered questions that many of them had.

Funny thing is, the protestors enjoyed the discussion with the capitalist and invited him back.
