May 1- USA Occupy- National Day of Action
A national day of Action called May Day is set to occur in the United States in a major coalition with many organizations calling for A Day without the 99% in effect is a day without the People that drive this economy.
The action calls for a day of strike by the 99% who comprise the engine of the US economy and a day without work, no schools, no shopping, no housework and no compliance.
The Action Day is one of peaceful protests throughout every major US city in the country, and police are preparing for city wide shutdowns.
The activity will include blocking banks, creative disruption to traffic, blocking bridges, tunnels and commuting will probably be delayed.
The strike calls for direct action including possible civil disobedience against the 1 %, Wall Street and the governments passage of laws that violate: Freedom, Internet use and the same operators that caused the 2008 Financial Global meltdown that have escaped the law. In essence, it is a Day of Strike.
It could be a day of massive economic losses to Wall Street, and the intentional activities are designed to bring down the stock market.
It is a day where capitalism, the Wall Street banks that still operate business as usual, will be the main focus.
Major Wall Street banks have already heightened security for their employees, and possibly many will not show up for work tomorrow. Occupy Wall Street has issued a statement that 99 firms have been targeted in Manhattan including specifically JPMorgan and Bank of America.
The site US Day of Rage . org plan to use “Money to act as the voices of millions, while individual citizens, the legitimate voters are silenced and demoralized by the farce”.
The ads consider the acts tomorrow to be “non-violent protests” of what is happening to the US government, that they feel is run by corporations and puppet politicians.
After a year of budget cuts, layoffs, privatizations, removal of collective bargaining rights, women’s reproductive rights, pay cuts, foreclosures, cuts to social security, pensions, cuts to social services -do you really blame people?
The public is fed up with corruption in government which includes:
Seizure of the internet through five bills proposed in the House of Representatives and those in Congress fending for the big corporate interests.
The collusion between big corporation money and politicians campaign funding affecting outcomes of elections, and election fraudulent practices.
The collusion of the Supreme Court with various corporations.
The continued contamination of the people’s food supply with pathogens, deadly poisons like: e.coli, salmonella and mad cow diseases are now common and USDA approved.
The continuation of wars, invasions of foreign countries that drain the US economy, prevents jobs, and creates chaos in the world.
The 1 trillion dollar 2012 US military budget that is borrowed money from China and profits only the Military Industrial Complex corporations -the war machine.
The list goes on and on -of what is wrong with the US government and unless the public demonstrates and takes action peacefully, this current state will continue to destroy the entire country. The activities are planned in over 115 cities across the country, from San Francisco to New York City where the financial elite live and play.
