March for Jobs and Economic Fairness
Thursday, December 1, 4pm – 6pm
Herald Square to Union Square
Union Square 6pm To Liberty Plaza

Assembly Area for Occupy Wall Street:
30th Street & 5th Avenue, SW corner
Occupy Wall Street will continue to Liberty Plaza

Every day we see people struggling to survive. That is why we march on Dec. 1, not just for the labor movement, but for everyone frustrated and worried about growing economic disparity in this country, for everyone who has ever agonized about finding a job, paying for college, meeting a mortgage payment, or buying food for dinner. The March for Jobs and Economic Fairness on Dec. 1 is a call to action and a show of unity — we want to march down Broadway and fill the street from curb to curb, so government and big business get our message: enough is enough.
It’s time to end the unfair economic policies that
benefit the few, and leave everyone else behind.

Come after work! Come after school! Come when you can!
This march is our call to action. Be there.
NO rally. NO speeches. It’s all been said before.

November 2nd: National Day of Action in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in Defense of the Occupy Movement Nationally

On October 25th, Occupy Oakland was brutally attacked by riot police. One protestor, Iraq veteran Scott Olson, remains in critical condition. But on Wednesday, thousands of protestors re-occupied Oscar Grant Plaza in courageous defiance of this attempt at repression. The Oakland General Assembly has called for a general strike on Wednesday, November 2nd. Given this call, and given the national attempt by mayors and police to repress and silence our movement, the Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street is calling for a national day of action on November 2nd in solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in defense of the Occupy movement nationally. We urge students, labor, the unemployed and all members of the 99% to take action on that day to send a message that our movement will not be silenced.

Friday, October 21st: CWA and Occupy Wall Street March Against Verizon Corporate Greed

Verizon workers are part of the 99%!  Together with Occupy Wall Street, we will march from 140 West Street past Zuccotti Park to shine a spotlight on corporate greed at Verizon and Verizon Wireless. 

JOIN US!

4-5 PM before the march Verizon Workers will Picket Verizon HQ 140 West Street

5:15 PM We will march from 140 West street to Liberty Plaza

5:30 We will march from Liberty Plaza to rally at a nearby Verizon Wireless Store by 6pm (final store location not announced).

45,000 Verizon and Verizon Wireless workers are on the front lines of the struggle against corporate greed.

Verizon is the 16th largest corporation in America, with one of the largest union workforces. In the past four years, Verizon made $22.5 billion in profits and paid its top five executives $258 million —yet wants to slash workers’ benefits, force us to pay thousands of dollars more for health care, reduce our sick time, and eliminate our job security.

Next Up Summit of Young Labor Unionists Supports Occupy Wall Street Protests

AFL-CIO’s Donna Jablonski writes:

The 800 young workers, activists and students at the AFL-CIO Next Up Young Worker Summit in Minneapolis announced their strong support of the Occupy Wall Street protesters:

 ”The world in which we live isn’t working for the vast majority of people. The top 1 percent controls the economy, makes profits at the expense of working people, and dominates the political debate. Wall Street symbolizes this simple truth: a small group of people have the lives and livelihoods of working Americans in their hands.

“In the last two weeks, young people have sparked a movement on Wall Street, just as they did through the Arab Spring and in Wisconsin against Scott Walker. Participants at the AFL-CIO Next Up Young Worker Summit left Occupy Wall Street to join with young people in the labor movement to talk about how best to take back our economy for the middle class.

 

“Today, more than 800 Next Up participants from around the country stand with those on Wall Street who are making their voices heard. The future of our country depends on young people demanding the future we believe in. And we believe that Wall Street should pay for the damage they’ve done to our economy, our jobs, and our communities – foreclosing on homes, making massive profits with no oversight, and not sharing in building a future for the next generation.

“We stand together in calling for a country that doesn’t just work for the top 1 percent. We stand together to call for a sustainable future that doesn’t begin with massive tax breaks for the wealthy and end with austerity measures and a jobs crisis.

“We are one.”

National Nurses United Statement in Support of the OccupyWallStreet.org actions in New York


National Nurses United (NNU), the nation’s largest registered nurse labor union, representing 170,000 direct care RNs, stands in support of, and in solidarity with, the ongoing OcuppyWallStreet.org street protests and rallies.

We applaud the commitment, savvy and sacrifice exhibited by the multitude of students, union members, clergy, and many others from all walks of life who have come together to loudly and clearly place the blame for the nation’s pain where it belongs. Wall Street caused the financial crisis and we share your demand that Wall Street pay us back.

NNU nurses are leading the fight for a Main Street Contract for the American People. The Contract calls for meeting the basic needs of a civilized society and ensuring that all pay their fair share. Currently the wealthiest individuals and corporations do not pay that fair share. NNU is campaigning for a Financial Transaction Tax on Wall Street to help remedy that inequity.

As nurses, our motto in this fight is simple. “Heal America. Make Wall Street Pay!”
