On September 15, Ambush Wall Street

We do not call lightly for revolution. Insurrection is traumatic. It requires great sacrifice. And if there were any other way to avert USA’s coming catastrophe, it would be a moral obligation to advocate it.

However, as American denizens, we are justifiably afraid for our nation and our neighbors. The president is a traitor: weak, fearful, illegitimate. Now our government cannot be trusted to protect us from foreign invasion, deep state coup, military defeat or internal disunion. Supreme Court appointees dream of granting unprecedented presidential powers and immunity from criminal prosecution, forever perverting the checks and balances of our democracy. The putinphillic’s every deed and tweet is totally inconsistent with a just regard for our innate natural rights, the doctrine of popular sovereignty, the Declaration of American Independence and the spirit of the Constitution of the United States. Under these conditions, revolution is not only justified. It is our collective duty.

And yet, since the inauguration all conventional attempts to dislodge the enemy within have failed. On the contrary, it has shown itself to be teflon when attacked directly. We need a new strategy.

Our best hope is to ignite an unexpected crisis with a DAY OF AMBUSH: a series of uncoordinated daring raids aimed not at the traitor directly, but at reawakening the people’s fury against the greatest corrupter of our democracy—Wall Street, the financial Gomorrah of America.

This is how the spark can happen:

September 15 is the ten year anniversary of the collapse of the infamous Lehman Brothers and the peak of the financial crisis of 2008. It is also the approximate seven year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. There will be unrest in Europe under the coalition banner #10YearsOn. Fifty actions across France will target banks. In the UK, activists will take on the Bank of England, declaring it a crime scene. Change Finance protests are being organized in several more countries. This is our opportunity in America to put the traitor to the test with a sustained crisis the billionaires cannot escape.

On September 15, we want to see 20,000 people AMBUSH WALL STREET with flash protests, midnight actions, and bold new daytime tactics aimed at hastening the great awakening.

With surprising actions large and small, we will smoke the black viper out of the White House and reinstate the rule of the people.

Screw up your courage and join us!

#AMBUSHWALLSTREET

September 15th

Provoke Trump.

  • This is a leaderless protest. If you want to organize for AMBUSH WALL STREET in your city, don’t ask permission - just do it! Repost this call to action on your blog and website, rewrite it, edit it, mash it up. Do whatever you feel will have the greatest possible revolutionary impact!

I have concerns. If this comes off seeming in anyway radical violent...police and Homeland security etc will unleash and it will look like we are an anarchist fringe movement and you know they can't wait to label us as dangerous. All we need is one person throwing molotov cocktails (even a plant) and it's done. In the current environment as scarce as jobs are people are unlikely to risk a criminal record and arrest with the wording as it stands...i'd be afraid to get involved.

What if instead people dress up like Marie Antoinette and the French aristocracy. Or dress like newsboys in the great depression. Or dress in revolutionary war outfits and stand silently in peace for the American people holding signs across from others dressed as bankers and ceo's. Silence can often have a bigger impact than the loudest noise. But you know the media loves costumes and giant cakes and we have a short attention span nation that needs constant stimulation. We are the creatives think like Banksy. You want people to join...they need to feel safe as well as safe enough to get close and film it for facebook and it needs to be attention getting in a good way and interesting and something entire families and kids can participate in. Do as Michael Moore does...use WS against itself. We are the good guys and the last thing we want to do is come off as anything less than that.

As well as specifically targeting Trump instead of WS alienates the right wing working guys...and we want them to agree with us. Win their hearts and the minds will follow. This is about jobs. Workers. The American Dream. Quality of life. Freedom. This movement should be for all of us. The 99.

We are creative enough to work this out. The word ambush seems violent. I don't like it. This type of protest never works. It gets flipped and we will be the bad guy. It isn't how you fight Narcissism.

Wait! America loves zombies (and humour). Zombie bankers eating and chasing the middle class. Eating wallets. And giant cake floats and mcmansion floats with yuppies waving from aloft sweaters around their necks golf clubs. The new American aristocracy. Some music to fit...maybe the Rolling Stones create a new song for it. George Lucas Shows up. U2 performs Hands that built America. Banksy gets revealed (even if he isn't there instead we have a Trump look a like come out and start spray painting nude and drunk ( more humour) Can not a protest be FUN!!!? Like something people can't wait to do...like Halloween. Or sort of like the superbowl without the football hmmm? Life is dull enough with the drudge and dreary prospects...if we are gonna take time off and travel ...let it be for something memorable, fun, and that will actually be plastered on social media and not end in bruises and tear gas. The macy's day parade of protests. Win the hearts, minds will follow.

Agreed. This must be peaceful and focused on Wall Street, not Trump.

It must be focused on the economic system that we have in place right now which can and should be fixed to work for everyone.

Ambush Wall Street! Just fkn do it! STOP being so scared & cowed in the 'land of the allegedly free &

home of the hopefully brave' & do NOT be distracted by RW trolls! Here is the relevant Twitter hashtag:

everyone is too fearful of repercussions OR how they will be labelled ... then no one will do anything or

even turn up! Reboot the Spirit of Occupy! Remember The 99% Struggle is not a single, discreet event

but a continuum. Also NEVER forget .. NO OWS .. NO Bernie! Also fyi - please play the 6m video here:

per aspera ad astra!

Since Trump took power

NO.....

Since People (ordinary) that have been driven insane by government that seems intent on suicide murder of the planet (failure to represent the best interests of ALL LIFE ON THIS PLANET AS WELL AS THE LIFE OF THIS PLANET AS WELL) - have decided (irrationally, to say the least) to elect a well known monster into the office of president of the USA - in what must be seen as a desire to commit suicide by depraved asshole in the cat-bird's seat and administration as well as appointees thereof - LOOK IT WAS NOT A FLUKE THAT THE MAN-BABY WON OFFICE - especially when one considers the decades of maneuvering to set-up gerrymandered states to totally FUCK the popular vote..................well...............I Could Go On pretty Much Forever On This decades long conspiracy/action - but - why should I ? - IT IS FUCKING TRANSPARENT TO ANYONE WITH AT LEAST ONE FUNCTIONING BRAIN-CELL to use to examine the recent past history of only 50 or so years!

Probably not. But I think the dynamic is becoming clearer to us all. Narcissists are able to fool people. They are experts at manipulation, maneuvering, lying, shifting all that. There is a reason people get lured in and ambushed by them. The real stupid ones like the birther loons who believe whatever tv or radio tells them and would believe the sky is green if Alex Jones preached it...can be swayed equally by us with a two minute conversation. Just need to get in their heads a little...not much there to explore. They need people to tell them what to think. They are sold by infomercials. And they vote gahhhh fingers in mouth scary.

More young women running for office - yes?! No more disjointed, unstable narcissistic man boys. Sorry for their pain but even they know they are too messed up to be running our country or governing.

Would be nice (awesome) ALSO to see - the general Public = protest the out of control banks, such as Wells Fargo and pretty much any other national & international bank - by moving their business to local banks and credit unions who actually support the communities in which they are located.

Sorry - I jumped the gun and posted Your proposal in a comment both here and on twitter as soon as I received your e-mail. But it is nice to know that you have not forgotten this heavily and relentlessly attacked place!
