 November 17
2-Month Anniversary of the 99% Movement

18 November 2011
 


Over over 30,000 New Yorkers took action Thursday, November 17, to demand that U.S. political system must serve all citizens — not just the wealthy and powerful few.


November 17, 2011, marks the two-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement that started at Liberty Square in the financial heart of the United States, and two-day anniversary of New York mayor's raid of the OWS camp. On the day, several thousand people assembled at Manhattan's Foley Square and then marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on a pedestrian promenade, arrived in the streets near New York Stock Exchange, and sat down in several intersections, chanting "All day, all week, shut down Wall Street!"

"Our political system should serve all of us — not just the very rich and powerful. Right now Wall Street owns Washington," said participant Beka Economopoulos. "We are the 99% and we are here to reclaim our democracy." (More at occupywallst.org)
