Movement activists the world over have begun a campaign to create Global Noise in an international potbanging protest on Saturday, October 13th.
The main goal is to foster a feeling of solidarity between all the global movements. Likewise, local occupations and occupiers across the country will be banging on pots and pans, a tactic known as a ‘casserole march’, in order to gain attention for our shared grievances.
Occupy Town Square along with Strike Debt and many other Occupy Wall Street Affinity Groups are answering the call for a day of #globalNoise.
Join us at 4pm this Saturday for a special Occupy Town Square to mark the occasion. Bring a blanket or just gather on the grass for teach-ins, discussions and trainings using the Open Space format.
At 6pm, we will answer the call from Strike Debt to converge at Columbus Circle for an Assembly, and then a Casserole March. Bring pots, pans and noise makers to share for this global day of action!

For this week's show we are going to take a look at the jobs/unemployment statistics and what this means for people. How is unemployment measured and what does it mean on the ground? What does it mean to not have a job? And when "jobs" go up like this, what kind of jobs are they?

For years the owners of Saigon Grill have failed to pay minimum wage and overtime to many of their delivery workers, and a boycott of the restaurant has begun in response. There is picketing at Saigon Grill Wednesday - Sunday, 12:30-2pm and 6:30-8:30pm. Supporters are particularly urged to come to the picket line on Friday evenings, but participation at any time is appreciated.
