Cornel West, Philosopher and Activist, to Speak at Occupy Wall Street Tonight
Occupy Wall Street is pleased to announce that noted philosopher and social justice advocate Cornell West, author of the book “Race Matters” among many others, will be speaking at tonight’s General Assembly, scheduled for 7 p.m. at Liberty Square at the intersection of Broadway and Liberty Street. He will be speaking about the circumstances that ultimately led thousands activists to occupy Wall Street, as well as the importance of people power in addressing them.
West has just wrapped up a nation-wide speaking tour talking about generational poverty. We at Occupy Wall Street are grateful to have him here addressing our group.
This is the tenth communiqué from the 99 percent. We are occupying Wall Street.
On September 27th, 2011, we marched on the Financial District's Luxury
Night Out, where couples wore outfits that cost more than we will ever
make in a month and looked at cars that cost more than we will ever
make in a year, afterward, they went back to one of their many houses
that cost more than we will make in our lifetime.
Occupied Boston doesn't need a bullhorn to have their voices heard.
They have the people's microphone.
So does Michael Moore, who addressed us tonight.
Occupied San Francisco grows larger every day.
Occupied Chicago was dispersed but not defeated. They will regroup and reoccupy.
