It's 'Occupy Wall Street' Day

Flyer for today's action.
Let's see how much media attention this protest gets. Though we must give kudos to CNN Money for covering it in advance, if only in a mildly snarky way.

Here's CNN Money:
...activist groups are hoping Americans will launch their own uprising -- in the form of thousands of protesters descending on Wall Street this weekend.
Occupy Wall Street is a "leaderless resistance movement" spearheaded by activist magazine Adbusters. Organizers want people to swarm into lower Manhattan on September 17 and set up camp for two months, then "incessantly repeat one simple demand."
What's that demand? They haven't decided yet.

The plan is to crowdsource the decision. Protestors are set to meet and discuss the issue at the iconic Wall Street Bull statue at noon Saturday, as well as at a "people's assembly" at One Chase Manhattan Plaza at 3 p.m.
We'll keep you posted.
