MAY DAY March + Celebrate with the OWS Global Justice Working Group
• No poverty • No mass incarceration • No racial profiling • No detentions •
• No wars • No bombs • No drones • No xenophobia • No state repression •
The 1% crashed our economy, foreclosed our homes, destroyed jobs, and waged wars for profit. We, the 99%, declare our commitment to resist and to end wars at home and abroad. We join with immigrants, workers, students, the unemployed and all people of conscience, united in a global picket against austerity, repression, and the theft of our lives, creativity, and a sustainable future.
On May 1, The Global Justice working group at Occupy Wall Street and friends will march together as a decolonize/antiwar/solidarity block. Bring signs representing your group!
Rally, 4 PM: Meet at the Gandhi statue in Union Square (southwest side, nr. W 15th St).
March, 5:30 PM: We’ll join the permitted march from Union Square to Wall Street with a coalition of labor, immigrant, OWS, student, and faith organizations.
Celebrate + connect, from end of march til the break of dawn: Dakota Roadhouse, 43 Park Place (nr. Church St). If not otherwise engaged in the event of unlawful actions by Bloomberg’s private army during this permitted march, we’ll eat, drink, and connect with likeminded grassroots organizers at the Global Justice working group’s inaugural happy hour.
Toast-off! Last September, the 1% once mocked us with champagne toasts from the balcony of a private Wall Street hotel. On May Day, we toast back! Tear gas profiteers, PR slobs, imperial thieves, vampire squids, and their government lackeys are no match for the people’s wit. Come with a “toast” to your own target in the 1%.
OWS Global Justice working group is a collective of activists working on Bahrain and Palestine solidarity, tear gas teach-ins, no war on Iran, save Jeju Island, building connections with Occupy/Indignados groups around the world, and other international peace and social justice issues.
