Sat, September 17, 2pm – Sat, December 24, 5pm
555 California/Bank Of America Building, 555 California Building & Civic Center/United Nations Plaza, San Francisco, CA
The Constitution of The United States of America was signed in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787. It represents the greatest expression of statesmanship and compromise ever written. Composed by the founders of our country, it has protected the rights of American citizens and the democratic way for many years. Until now...
The American government today is bought and sold by major corporations who control votes, lawmakers, and our tax money. They have NO moral dedication to the people of this country and have worked for years to destroy the middle class and enslave the poor through impossible debts and mental pollution.
There is no justifiable reason that in a country so rich and powerful that people should be starving, that children should go without education, that people should work their whole lives and have nothing to show for it except a debt.
And yet, The top 1% of Americans own as much wealth as the bottom 95% percent. Something needs to change...
This September 17th 2011.
* We will no longer choose to stand still while one of our country's greatest achievements, The Constitution, is skewed and vandalized by the actions of corporate giants.
* We will no longer stay quiet while our society is destroyed by the downward spiral of mass consumer capitalism.
* We will stand up for our rights and the rights of everyone who call the United States their home.
* And we will Occupy The San Francisco Financial District.
We will not be alone. New York has over 5000 people scheduled to attend in Lower Manhattan on Wall Street. Additionally, cities around the world such as Madrid, Milan, London, and Paris have all reported September 17th occupation plans underway.
Many other organizations are involved right here in San Francisco like Anonymous, US Day Of Rage, and USUncut will be attending in large numbers.
The time has come for us to stop standing by idly while others decide our fate and the fate of our nation. Democratic revolution is taking the globe by storm as people shed their corrupt governments and take command of their future with one collective voice.
On September 17th, We ask that you add your voice to ours in demanding that the control of this nation be given back to its people and not corporations.
Wont you join us?

Wall Street, New York (map)
September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan,
set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a
few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand
in a plurality of voices.
First, invite all
of your friends to this event, then weigh in on what our "one demand"
should be at
Alright you redeemers, rebels, radicals and utopian dreamers out there,
worldwide shift in revolutionary tactics is underway right now that
bodes well for the future. The spirit of this fresh tactic, a fusion of
Tahrir with the acampadas of Spain, is captured in this quote:
"The antiglobalization movement was the first step on the road. Back
then our model was to attack the system like a pack of wolves. There was
an alpha male, a wolf who led the pack, and those who followed behind.
Now the model has evolved. Today we are one big swarm of people." — Raimundo Viejo, Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, Spain
beauty of this new formula, and what makes this novel tactic exciting,
is its pragmatic simplicity: we talk to each other in various physical
gatherings and virtual people's assemblies … we zero in on what our one
demand will be, a demand that awakens the imagination and, if achieved,
would propel us toward the radical democracy of the future … and then we
go out and seize a square of singular symbolic significance and put our
asses on the line to make it happen.
On September 17, we want
to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens,
peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once
there, we shall incessantly repeat our one simple demand until Barack
for the wild,
