Shut Down Wall Street Live Blog

It’s Der Tag! Rise up and throw off your chains! Death to Smoochy!

Thursday November 17th, marks two months since the start of Occupy Wall Street as well as International Students Day. To commemorate this two month anniversary, Occupy Wall Street will take to the streets in celebration and in solidarity with people around the world participating in a massive global day of action in hundreds of cities.

In the wake of Bloomberg’s predawn raid of Occupy Wall Street on Tuesday morning, thousands of people throughout the five boroughs and the greater region will join together to take nonviolent action tomorrow. We will gather to resist austerity, rebuild the economy, and reclaim our democracy. We will no longer tolerate a system that only serves the very rich and powerful. Right now Wall Street owns Washington. We are the 99% and we are here to reclaim our democracy.


7:00am — Shut Down Wall Street
We will gather in Liberty Square at 7:00am, before the ring of the Trading Floor Bell, to prepare to confront Wall Street with the stories of people on the frontlines of economic injustice.

3:00pm — Occupy the Subway
We will gather at 3:00pm at 16 central subway hubs and take our own stories to the trains, using the “People’s Mic”. Details here.

5:00pm — Take the Square, Festival of Lights on Brooklyn Bridge
At 5:00pm thousands will gather at Foley Square in solidarity with laborers demanding jobs to rebuild this country’s infrastructure and economy. They will encircle City Hall and march across the Brooklyn Bridge, carrying thousands of handheld lights, as a festival of lights to celebrate two months of a new movement to reclaim our democracy.

Resist austerity. Rebuild the economy. Reclaim our democracy.

Don’t worry about all the proles whose lives you’ll be disrupting. They’ll thank you later. When the police come and arrest you and your comrades, be sure to scream “Brutality!” and “This is what a police state looks like!” Download the new iPhone app to record yourself being beaten and tear gassed.

If 8000 people participate, that will be .01% of New York City!!!


¡Viva la Revolución! ¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!

BTW – Average attendance at a NY Yankee Imperialists home game in 2011 was 45,107 people.

    Yes, I am having too much fun with this.

      Like taking candy from a baby. They’re so stupid and lost and misguided that it’s hard to resist making fun. The OFA embedded leaders just walk around with their flutes and the children follow. They’ve got to be laughing their asses off. No reason we shouldn’t as well.

    I’m going to stick with the Jackass-o-lantern avatar.

    I do not think I have ever laughed out loud at 5 AM. I do have a question about the Tiananmen Square, err, Wall St poster. Do the banks and investment houses have tanks now? Did they use stimulus funds to buy them? Is the lonely figure in front of the Chinese, er, Wall St tanks carrying shopping bags? Are the Wall St tanks trying to stop the protester after he has been shopping? What is in the shopping bags?

    • myiq2xu says:

      The guy in the original picture the poster is based on ended up being executed.

      • Lulu says:

        I know. Do you not think the symbolism is a little over the top and inflammatory? And I find their graphics to be unimaginative, manipulative and repetitive which are all hallmarks of a professional ad campaign. It is creepily similar to Obama’s in 2008.

        • DandyTiger says:

          Of course it looks and feels like Obama 2008. That’s not a coincidence. And unimaginative is exactly right. Why put in the extra effort and be creative when you have morons following you. Not worth the extra effort.

    CNN is interviewing Howard Wolfsen from NYC admin

  5. crawdad says:

    There’s a crowd, but not huge. Maybe 1000

    Everybody is standing around waiting. Who’s in charge?

  6. myiq2xu says:

    Police refusing to let them march on Wall Street – they don’t have a parade permit.

    • DandyTiger says:

      They’re so pathetic yet entertaining, I vote NYC give them permanent parade permit. March of the jesters.

  7. myiq2xu says:

    The guy with the camera thinks they are overpowering the police.

    They’re gonna walk into a box like they did on the Brooklyn Bridge.

  8. Ack! Can not watch- I realize it is hard to keep the camera steady when you are moving- but it gives me a headache.
    Keep us updated plz.

    looks like RD has got a new job..touting for money to attend the ows rally. she’s quite the entrepreneur these days. hahaha

  10. myiq2xu says:

    The march appears to be lost in the maze of Manhattan

    I don’t see Michael Moore’s fat ass anywhere.

  12. myiq2xu says:

    March = wander aimlessly

  13. blowme0bama says:

  17. myiq2xu says:

    I’ve watched BlurryCam and listened to the doofus holding it for a couple hours now.

    I need a break.

    There better not be any police brutality until I get back.

    I just read an article about Occupy Seattle. This sentence ticked me off, “Few women are visible at the Occupy Seattle camp, but one at least was to be found in the kitchen….”

  19. yttik says:

    We have a breaking news update:

    “9:28 a.m. ET – ABC News’ TJ Winick: Just overheard from two middle age protesters – ”Do you know what the plan is now?” “I don’t think there is one.”
