October 30, 2012: Postponed — Westchester Fairness Forum

We’re postponing our forum previously scheduled for Tuesday night to allow Westchester residents to recover from Hurricane Sandy — stay tuned for more details.

We’re working with the WPCLB, Westchester for Change, unions & community groups on rescheduling, and we’ll let you know what’s up as quick as we can — meanwhile, be careful, be safe, and take care of each other.

New York is mired in unemployment, and we’re actually creating ONLY low-wage jobs. We’re on the wrong path.

Too many politicians have been steering us in the wrong direction: New York is now #1 in the nation for income inequality.

It’s time for a roadmap that takes us away from austerity towards prosperity and a stronger economy that works for all of us.

• BETTER WAGES & MORE JOBS

September 12, 2012: OWS S17 Planning Meeting

September 17 is almost here — it’s been four years since the criminal bailout of Wall Street and one year since we began to let our voices be heard in Zuccotti Park.

This Wednesday we’ll come together once more before the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street to continue the movement for economic, social and environmental justice in New York, in America and around the world.

OWS S17 COMMUNITY-LABOR SUPPORT PLANNING MEETING
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 12 * 6pm – 8pm
UFT 52 Broadway 19th Floor Room B and C

In a huge election year, it’s clear that our government and our democracy are now for sale to the highest bidder. In a time of continuing unemployment, debt and tough times for the 99%, the super-rich are living lives of luxury and trying to buy the policies that will lock in their advantages permanently. In the midst of our growing power, anti-union legislation continues to pass and anti-worker politicians continue to rise. The destruction of the planet intensifies as dirty power companies continue to receive government subsidies, while fossil fuel lobbyists and their friends in Washington present a false alternative between jobs and the environment.

OWS will celebrate its one-year anniversary on September 17th. And it’s important that New York activists and organizers help make the anniversary something that sends a strong message across the City, across the State, all over the country and around the world.

It’s time to take the “for sale” sign off our democracy and take it back for the people. It’s time to stop the huge flows of corporate money into politics and put voters back in. Its time to sound the alarm on climate change, and to create a sustainable and just economy for all. It’s time to stop the 1% and empower the 99%.

To stop Big Money and Wall Street greed, we need a fighting force that takes on the strongest elements of the 1% with people power, direct action, smart strategy and fierce moral urgency. We need a strong and active Occupy Wall Street.

Our coalition includes major NYC labor unions, community-labor coalitions, large-scale money out of politics organizations, the strongest national environmental organizations in the country and NYC’s most effective community-based organizations. Help us continue to grow.

DATE: WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 12
TIME: 6pm – 8pm
PLACE: United Federation of Teachers 52 Broadway 19th Floor Room B and C

August 16, 2012: Occupy Wall Street 1-Year Anniversary – Community-Labor Support Meeting

All Roads Lead to Wall Street

FRIENDS AND ALLIES:

Remember last September 17 and the days and weeks that followed?

People were drawn from all over the City and all over America to occupy Wall Street and call out the greed that’s crippling our country and our world.

Inspired by the Arab Spring and fueled by participation in May 12, Bloombergville, amazing organizing campaigns and the courage of thousands of people taking direct action, we joined together.  Community, labor, students and faith groups joined up with Occupiers and dramatically changed the terms of debate on dozens of issues in just a few months.

We made history.

You were part of building that momentum—and you know that you are needed now more than ever before.

In a huge election year, it’s clear that our government and our democracy are now for sale to the highest bidder.  In a time of continuing unemployment, debt and tough times for the 99%, the super-rich are living lives of luxury and trying to buy the policies that will lock in their advantages permanently.

We’re all fighting to take back our country – and Occupy Wall Street is in the forefront of that fight.

OWS will celebrate its one-year anniversary next month.  And it’s important that New York activists and organizers help make the anniversary something that sends a strong message across the City, across the State, all over the country and around the world.

It’s time to take the “for sale” sign off our democracy and take it back for the people.  It’s time to stop the huge flows of corporate money into politics and put voters back in.  It’s time to stop the 1% and empower the 99%.

To stop Big Money and Wall Street greed, we need a fighting force that takes on the strongest elements of the 1% with people power, direct action, smart strategy and fierce moral urgency.  We need a strong and active Occupy Wall Street.

Please join us next Thursday, August 16 at 4:30PM for an organizing meeting to support three days of music, education, activism and direct action in support of Occupy Wall Street and a broad movement for economic and social justice.

DATE:  THURSDAY AUGUST 16

TIME:   4:30PM – 6PM

PLACE:  50 BROADWAY 2ND FLOOR ROOM E

Join us next Thursday afternoon to hear about the plans and begin our work to support and participate in this important effort.
