Posted 12 years ago on July 26, 2011, 12:44 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

From: New Yorkers Against Budget Cuts
The people who brought you the Bloombergville Occupation.

In response to the Sept. 17th Occupy Wall St. call, we decided to incorporate the organizing for the event with a New Yorkers Against Budget Cuts General Assembly on Wall St. on Aug. 2nd. In order to build the Sept. 17th call, we will use this opportunity to have the first NYC meeting for the Sept. 17th event.

Event Details

On Tuesday, August 2 (The Bankers' "Debt-Ceiling Deadline")

Come To A People's General Assembly On Wall Street
Oppose Cutbacks And Austerity Of Any Kind

Plan For The September 17 Occupation Of Wall Street

Gather at 4:30: Meet At The Bull, Just South Of Broadway And Morris Street, At The North End Of Bowling Green Park

As the two U.S. political parties unite to dismantle Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, it's clear:

The bankers are looting decades-old peoples' programs and the Democrats can't help us. Obama can't help us. Elected officials can't help us.

It's time for the people to meet and take the bull by the horns!

The students, union activists, and others who organized "Bloombergville" -- the three-week anti-austerity occupation on Wall Street's doorstep -- have called for an August 2 General Assembly/Speakout on Wall Street, at the bull, from 4:30 to 7, to protest the ongoing pro-bank, anti-people cutbacks and gather into working groups to plan for the September 17 occupation of Wall Street.

This is a call for every teacher, home health aid, parent, student, tenant, librarian, city/state employee, childcare provider, nurse, patient, employed or unemployed worker or recipient of Social Security or any type of public assistance: on August 2 come to Wall Street--the scene of the crimes now being perpetrated on the people -- and make your voice heard!

The current depression-level crisis is not due to lack of revenue. It's due to theft. The trillions that the banks are sitting on right now? That's our money. Whether through taxes; the looting of pension and social security contributions; or the wealth we created from our labor -- all of that belongs to us. Come to Wall Street August 2 and strategize -- on how to get that back!

Since WHEN was the banking, money, credit and debt crisis caused by the "left"? Everything that is presently wrong with this government and economy was caused by the greed of the "right" and there is no escaping it. The left stands for rights of the workers, the poor, the oppressed, the common, the under represented, the needy in healthcare, education and other assistance. The "right" stands for corporate power and greed, the usurping of government power and the phasing out of our own power and say in our government. If you seriously do not know this difference, you shouldn't be writing for this website.

There should be retiree's who have lost their retirement money to these Wall Street crooks lined up by the thousands, There message is not being as pronounced as the others, if not the first message. Billions of dollars were ripped offed from retirement (IRA Accounts). Their needs to be retribution for this atrocity. Retiree's unite now. our message, WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK!

A solid first step in fixing our economic and political woes is to disqualify any person worth more than two million dollars from holding political office. The rich are too corrupted by greed to be an any benefit to the community generally. Putting the rich in government is like turning over the reins of power to a bunch of felons. The American middle class, the true creator of jobs and wealth, should control the government for the people. I look forward to some politician proposing this amendment before the greed of the already wealthy completely destroys our democratic way of life, economy and values. The foundation of our nation is not capitalism but democracy in the form of a Republic. Capitalism is nowhere even mentioned in the American Constitution. Capitalism is a tool of democracy to generate wealth and prosperity. Democracy should not be the tool of capitalism to generate wealth for a few. Capitalism is a beast that must be harnessed to pull the plow for the well-being of humanity. Now is an historic opportunity for hard-working and creative middle class Americans to assert their majority rights against a corrupt and ineffective elite who have brought the country to the brink of ruin.

Budget cuts are the Republican GOP plan to kill the economy to prevent Obama from getting re-elected. they are willing to commit economic treason for political gain!

New Deal! (for those of you that know history -- for those of you that don't google it!).

It would be very cool for someone to film/record this meeting or at least write up a summary of what was discussed for those that can't make it or live in another part of the country.
