May Day Wildcat March Called for 1pm

Posted 12 years ago on April 23, 2012, 2:39 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt


A call has gone out for a massive Wildcat march in NYC on May 1st, starting at 1PM. The original call is available here. Seconding strikeisaverb, See you in the streets! Forward and Repost widely. https://www.facebook.com/events/297929263615205/ and print and distribute flyers (wildcatmarchflyer-single, wildcatmarchflyer-quarter)


MAY 1ST, 2012 1PM

We were told by bosses, by activists, by union leaders we couldn’t strike. Perhaps, they suggested, if we wanted to protest we could carry a sign and walk within police barricades, safely cordoned off in a free speech zone. On May 1st, we aren’t working and we aren’t protesting. We are striking.

We call on all fellow wildcat strikers to join us for a massive unpermitted march at 1pm at Sara D. Roosevelt Park (corner of 2nd and Houston). Along with striking rebels all over the world, we will show the bosses and cops of the world that we are many and we are only getting stronger.

Bring drums, banners, music, and an affinity group. Stay tight and stay in the streets. See you on May Day.





Read the Rules

Aren't wildcat strikes spur of the moment and unplanned walk outs?

I am not for a General Strike at all. Period, the May Day event should allow the public to get too and from work. Anything that blocks people's ability to earn income will only further drive a wedge between the general public's perception of OWS. Some of you forget people make an hourly wage and guess what happens when you can't show up? Do you think employers say "don't worry about it we got you, sure we'll pay you anyway" ?

The unions are against a General Strike. Why do we have to strain the tenuous relationship we have? Look whoever is planning this Wildcat Strike needs to think of the greater good and stop trying create wedge issues. It's frustrating to the majority of the movement. Has the NYCGA approved this because I have not heard nor seen any sort of mention of this in recent weeks? Sounds like someone is going rogue.

As far as I know, this action is not being organized through the NYCGA, but that doesn't make it "rogue" -- we are after all a leaderless, horizontally-organized movement.

We need to burn up the net with this. There can't be anyone in America who can honestly say they haven't heard about it!

With any luck we can spread this to other cities. Power is in the streets, not in the voting booth or the staid legislative assemblies of the 1%. We can have everything. All we have to do is take it. The New York Stock Exchange is not the New York Stock Exchange. It is the future home of the Museum of Occupy Wall Street. No War, No Money, No Markets, No Nation States. In its place: FREEDOM! Join us in the streets on may day until we bring this whole rotten system down all over the world!
