Every Friday until May 1st, Occupy Wall Street is practicing various march tactics and formations in preparation for General Strike on May 1st.
These weekly marches are intended to be a low-risk activity carried out in a creative way to make it to the NYSE, where we counter the closing bell with the “People’s Gong.”
This week, in preparation for General Strike on May 1st, we become familiar with the public and privately owned public spaces in the Wall St area with a game of Capture the Flag. We will practice moving in smaller groups, making quick decisions and achieving our goal of countering the NYSE closing bell with the People’s Gong.
Bring sleeping gear for later that evening to join protesters in sleeping on Wall St!
Although these weekly marches are intended to be a low-risk activity carried out in a creative way each week, as our numbers have grown, so has police repression. Nonetheless, we are within our rights as peaceful protesters and we will carry on our tradition of the People’s Gong until May Day !!
See you there!
