Two years ago, the Occupy Movement– with its simple “We Are the 99%!” message– united the world by enlightening us to the workings of the corporate oligarchy and the governments they run (including our own) and how this system is designed to keep us down.
Worldwide, Occupy encampments sprang up in 2011. On the second anniversary of Occupy, there will be worldwide protests against austerity.
Here at home the anniversary will be marked with a Poor People’s Party. Here is the information from Occupy Tucson.
This Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013, beginning at 6:00 pm, Occupy Tucson, National Nurses United, and Progressive Democrats of America are hosting a Poor People’s Party to offer a collective response to the global austerity measures foisted upon us.
Come to 225 E 26th Street and check out the new national headquarters for the Alliance for Global Justice.
We’re having a pot-luck supper, free movies, free games, and a chance to video-record personal responses to “What Austerity Means to Me.”
Please spread the word. Bring your favorite games. Let’s have some fun. That’s the best response to a widening wealth gap, a corrupt political system, and a ramped-up hyper-militarized police state.
