Occupied. #S17 updates from #occupywallstreet in NYC.

On the weekend of September 17th we are calling all members of the 99% to converge on New York City for three days of celebration, education, and resistance.

And we need your help to make this convergence a truly historic event.

Donate to help support Occupy Wall Street actions on our one year anniversary

Over the past year we have fundamentally changed the conversation and empowered people to take to the streets in their communities. We pinpointed the proper Villain in the American Nightmare, and displayed how when it comes to the degradation of the American Dream, All Roads Lead to Wall Street.

Yes we changed the conversation, and now we act that much more forthrightly to change the world. Likewise, we are seeking funds to facilitate such large ambitions.

Help provide resources to support our actions on the weekend of September 15-17.

Our previous request for contributions to the OWS May Day Fund was a great success, helping make May Day a large scale spectacle. The funds were utilized to support communications, transportation, food, printing costs, art fabrication, and music production for actions throughout the day, including the pop-up occupation of Bryant Park, the solidarity rally and concert at Union Square, and the Popular Assembly in the financial district.

We are using the same system of resource allocation this time, which we have renamed the Action Resource Fund (ARF). ARF will be raising and distributing funds via the S17 Planning Group, a body convened by the Direct Action Working Group in July.

The most important way you can show your support is by joining us in the streets on #S17. But we also need financial and material resources to spread the word and support actions.

Please contribute if you are able to and help increase the scale of what we can achieve on our anniversary
