  •  Tomorrow is a day of action (6+ / 0-)

    An international day of action #Nov17

        At 7 a.m. tomorrow Occupy Wall Street will attempt to

    live up to its name. Hundreds of activists will converge upon the Street's most famous address—the New York Stock Exchange—in a coordinated attempt to shut it down. The blockade will be the first protest in a long day of carefully-planned demonstrations to mark what would have been the two-month anniversary of the occupation of Zuccotti Park........
        If everything goes according to plan tomorrow, the protesters will sit down, lock arms, and keep enough people out of the NYSE to stop the morning bell. Of course, mass arrests are all but inevitatable. Fithian and a representative of the National Lawyers Guild went through how to deal with tear gas, what not to say to police, and how to dress for jail. (Layers. "It could be hot or it could be cold," she said.)......
        The NYSE shutdown is far from the only protest planned for tomorrow. At 3 p.m. protesters will gather at 16 different subway stations throughout NYC's five boroughs to "listen to a singluar story from one of our hardest-hit and most inspirational neighbors," according to a flier handed out at the training this evening. Then at Foley Square, just north of Zuccotti, a celebration will kick off at 5 p.m. followed by a "march to our bridges, where we will demand that we get back to work rebuilding our country's infrastructure," the flier explains.
