You are invited to attend:
The After Party
Friday, May 2, 2014 3:00 PM until Sunday, May 4, 2014 9:00 AM
Your party is over, Wall Street.
The People are awakening and we are aren't asking your permission to clean up the mess you left behind and get on with our lives.
This is the beginning of a political movement to wrestle back control of our homes, our lives and our future for us, the 99%.
It begins in the shell of the old turning new again: Detroit. Home of Motown Records, Black Power, the labor movement, the Port Huron Statement, Grace Lee Boggs, Occupy Detroit, the soul of the midwest.
You are invited to the launch of the After Party, an independent populist force in politics. The After Party is a political movement for a democratic revolution, building local power by and for working people and standing up to the banks and big corporations.
You are needed in Detroit for the first Mission of the After Party: Flash Mob Mutual Aid. We will work shoulder-to-shoulder under the guidance of local community activists to build urban gardens, clean up debris and serve food to the hungry.
Join us. All are invited. Keep an eye on afterpartyusa.org for rideshares and updates.
Attend The After Party Launch: RSVP HERE
Please arrive to Bert's Market Place, 2727 Russell St, Detroit, MI 48207 by 3pm on Friday, May 2nd for registration.

Dear Occupy Wall Street,
I'm writing you because I'm hoping you might find this funny, stimulating, obvious, and mostly important.
Some friends and I have built The New IRS. Yes, that IRS. We have been hard at work developing a simulation for a very obvious fix of Representative Democracy:
The ability for each of us to be able to allocate where our tax money goes on our federal income tax forms.
It is a fun and yet profound simulation of a far more complete power to the people. There is nothing partisan about this.
Through very simple participation, we are collecting NATIONAL DATA to be released a few days after TUESDAY - TAX DAY - to reveal any disparities between the will of the people and the actual federal expenditures.
It would mean so very much to me if you would venture to the site and fill it out TODAY or TOMORROW - TAX DAY. (And I promise it is very no-hassle to use).
Even further, if you would care to tweet it or share it through any form of social media, it would be of tremendous help to a very worthy and outrageously obvious cause.
Here are the links:
Long live living, breathing things
PS - Feel free to share this email with whomever.

You Are Needed,
The After Party
"A message from some of our friends in Occupy." - OSN
Today, a group of occupiers, seasoned activists and future leaders are announcing the launch of a new political movement for a democratic revolution in the U.S.A.
Two and a half years ago, we took to the streets in hundreds of cities to protest the financial elite and their cronies in government. We created protest communities in public spaces, abolished debt, wrote the Volcker Rule for financial reform, and helped hurricane survivors rebuild. Now, we’re challenging our corrupt government directly by building political power, starting at the local level.
The After Party isn’t a traditional political party in any sense. We organize by identifying and meeting a community’s needs from beyond the political system, and getting rid of corrupt politicians by getting our own community leaders into local office. We will feed the hungry, educate those who wish to learn, care for the sick, and house those whose homes have been taken. We will break the stranglehold of the broken two-party system by innovating and changing the rules of the game.
We’re counting on you to tell your friends about the After Party, and help us get the word out about the new political party that will finally speak for, and with, young people, the poor, people of color, the homeless, the hungry, and the uninsured -- the same people who have been left out of the conversation for too long.
‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on Party news!
In solidarity with the global 99%,
the After Party team
