#S17: 3 Days of Education, Celebration & Resistance

The folks at Occupy Wall Street in New York City have been making plans to celebrate their September 17th for weeks now. Our friend Walter has been involved in some of the grassroots planning sessions.

Currently, there are only hints on-line of what will happen. There is a big push to register (which I am not keen on). Though, the main point is this: Please leave Monday, September 17th open, to go to events in New York City, or your locale. There will be three days worth of events: Saturday, Sept 15th; Sunday, Sept 16th; and Monday, Sept 17th.

On Monday, 9/17, it seems like there will be early morning demonstrations on Wall Street, and a noon start to other actions. I also found a very cool event listing for Monday evening: The Fannie Lou Hamer S17 City-Wide Community and Action Assembly at Liberty Plaza (Zuccotti Park).

The main focus of #S17 at this point seems to be on the economic justice issues. I am hoping that more peace activists will insert themselves, and remind folks to feature an “anti-war” message, too. It is so easy in an election year to allow Democratic politicians and Democratic apologists to steer folks away from the anti-war message. Yet, Occupy Wall Street’s energy and mission includes de-militarizing our democracy. So, those issues should stay front and center, too.

Some good places to stay up-to-date are:

The New York City General Assembly website: here

OccupyWallSt.org: here

Follow on Twitter with: #S17

The website for the event is: www.s17nyc.org
