Forum Post: We need an uprising!

This content is user submitted and not an official statement

I am organizing a four day anti-capitalist event in NYC this month called Blockupy NYC. Our goal is to start a series of large protest in New York City similar to the student uprising in Quebec.

We invite activist, radicals, anarchists, revolutionaries, students, undocumented people, Occupiers and anti-capitalists to protest a wide variety of issues like government corruption, police brutality, income inequality, low minimum wage, etc.

On June 28 we will meet at Zuccotti park at 3pm. We will then march to Blockupy Wall Street.

If you have any questions or suggestions for a protest, write a comment.

RSVP, invite your friends and spread the word: http://www.facebook.com/events/313804038706825/

I think calling it an anti-corruption uprising is more powerful than calling it anti-capitalist. Many people don't see anything wrong with capitalist systems except that regulations are not good enough here in the US to stop evil-doers.

NB : Suspicious Troll Post - though potentially a good idea !!!

Putative poster "OccupyALLst" (joined forum 8th June, 2012) is clearly trying to mimic and usurp the main News Poster "OccupyWallSt" (joined 15th May, "2011) !!

Behaviour pattern clearly resembles the primary known 'Anti-OWS Troll' and self-confessed 'agent provocateur' 'TrashyScumBot', known by ~50 other monikers !

I have a blog: OccupyAllStreets.tumblr.com. I created it in October and I update it daily. This is not a troll post.

IF that is so and you are good and true, then I withdraw my words and apologise unequivocally. We've got some Troll-Issues on this forum and I regret any collateral damage that I may have done to you.

Good Luck to you and all you do & SOLIDARITY !!!

I understand, the trolls are one of the reasons I avoided the forums.

An admin on the OccupyWallSt subreddit told me that if we can people to RSVP, @OccupyWallSt on twitter will endorse it and post it on the front page. If you don't mind, please RSVP and invite some friends.

You may want to contact the people, who manage http://commonstruggle.org/ and ask if you can post an announcement. I'm sure they'd be happy to help. Also, try posting on the forums at http://libcom.org/

Good luck.
