Our First Anniversary is Fast Approaching + Upcoming Events Aug. 1st-11th

Posted 11 years ago on Aug. 1, 2012, 12:29 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

September 17, 2011 marked the beginning of Occupy Wall Street, and anticipation for our one-year anniversary is growing as we plan an international convergence in New York City. Everyone is encouraged to join and add their voice during our September 17 planning meetings on Monday evenings. Not in NYC? There's a lot you can do for #S17 even if you're not local as well.
