December 12th: Occupy Strikes Back
NYC will Target the Vampire Squid- Goldman Sachs In solidarity with the West Coast Port Shutdown on December 12th, the NYC Occupy Movement vows to disrupt business as usual for the those that exploit our nation's ports – and profit from the exploitation of tens of thousands of working people laboring behind the scenes ...of the international trade system.
In New York, Occupy Wall Street is descending upon a single Wall Street giant – the owner of half of one of the planet's largest transportation and shipping outfits – Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs is the vampire squid who sucks the blood of workers.
Goldman Sachs' shipping companies throughout the United States, specifically in LA, cynically pit thousands of citizens and undocumented immigrants against each other -- for low wage jobs with unreliable hours -- Goldman Sachs and its shipping companies reap record profits off the backs of workers.
In recent weeks, the working class and the Occupy Movement have borne nationally coordinated attacks backed by the 1%. In turn, from the ports to the highways, the Occupy Movement is launching a nationally coordinated attack on the amoral profiteering of the 1%.
Occupies from coast to coast have joined with longshoremen and truckers in the fight against the exploitation of workers. On December 12th, the 99% will take action in support of these workers and their successful mobilizations, unifying around key strategic targets engaged in indulgent control of our economy and government.
We will converge at 2 points before marching at 7:30am on December 12th. City Hall (on Broadway side) and the Red Cube across from Liberty Square. Please RSVP only if you plan to attend!
