With Election Day only a couple weeks away, we need to challenge Wall Street's political power-grab now, not wait until after the damage is done! Join 99Rise on October 24th in New York City for a second wave of nonviolent direct action to demand big banks come clean on any and all efforts to buy our democracy in secret!
We will stage at Louis Nevelson Plaza (corner of Liberty St. & Maiden St.) at 10:45 AM, before heading to our actual target(s) - a major nearby bank or banks (we'll let you know which at the staging location). The action will begin at 11:30 AM. We’ll peacefully demand that the target bank(s) immediately disclose all secret political expenditures. Some of us will engage in nonviolent civil disobedience by refusing to leave the premises until either our simple demand is met or the bank(s) has/have us all arrested.
IMPORTANT: You don't have to risk arrest to join the action. But if you are down to risk arrest, you need to attend the nonviolent action training on Monday, October 22nd. Please contact Guido Girgenti (see below) if you can't make this training. We encourage you to bring American flags & a dollar bill to tape over your mouth. Also, water. That’s good too.
