Occupy Wall Street Plans Global Disruption of Status Quo May 1

Source: Bloomberg

Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, whose anti-greed message spread worldwide during an eight-week encampment in Lower Manhattan last year, plan marches across the globe tomorrow calling attention to what they say are abuses of power and wealth.

Organizers say they hope the coordinated events will mark a spring resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter. Calls for a general strike with no work, no school, no banking and no shopping have sprung up on websites in Toronto, Barcelona, London, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, among hundreds of cities in North America, Europe and Asia.

In New York, Occupy Wall Street will join scores of labor organizations observing May 1, traditionally recognized as International Workers’ Day. They plan marches from Union Square to Lower Manhattan and a “pop-up occupation” of Bryant Park on Sixth Avenue, across the street from Bank of America’s Corp.’s 55-story tower.

“We call upon people to refrain from shopping, walk out of class, take the day off of work and other creative forms of resistance disrupting the status quo,” organizers said in an April 26 e-mail.

1. I'm really looking foward to participating in the action tomorrow. A day to honor labor

and human rights.

It would be so awesome if everyone who supported labor and human rights would just take a day to reflect on our situation, and maybe join with like minded folks.

The best way to get the attention and change the attitude of the 1% and all republicans is to hit them in their wallet.

5. I know what you mean ...

I could only handle the first 2-3 comments before being completely disgusted.

They really have no clue.
