|To The Awake & Inspired, |
This Saturday at 5pm we take:
...with music, performance and a message that the people of this country - not the banks, not the corporations - hold the true power.
It's a rare moment that a grass roots protest movement takes over the national conversation. From the Occupation of Wall St., a thrilling national movement has emerged.
This Saturday, October 15th, hundreds of cities across the country will host demonstrations in support of the #Occupy movement. In New York City, dozens of community groups, unions, student organizations and lots and lots of regular folk are taking to the streets in a mass protest that will culminate in Times Square at 5pm, then moving (by train party!) downtown.
You are invited to be a part of it. Come join the Occupation Party and participate in a stunning moment expressing hope and a new vision for the future - and showing our solidarity with the people who have already been occupying Wall Street for weeks.
Meet at the TKTS kiosk in the north section. From our street carnival in Times Sq. we will take the protest party to the trains and head downtown.
Together we are the tipping point.

~ Wear ~
White. As dramatic as possible. In many cultures dressing in white is a symbol of hope and transition. Think: white suits, dresses, face-paint, glitter, balloons, banners, be inspired.
~ The Moment ~
At sunset there will be a moment that will light the night (safe / legal and participatory.)
This is one part of a massive movement.
Together, we are the tipping point
